Last nights GOP debate provided one shining moment that might give hope to those of us who still have hope that all of the remaining candidates might come to understand what it is that they are seeking to become.
But, to find that moment required Dave to do something he hasn’t been very good at doing lately, that is start his weekly Torah study earlier and spend less time chasing threads and tangents. Since he managed to do it for once this week, what did he find that brought just a glimmer of hope?
It started when the Tabernacle was put together and dedicated by the Israelites in the desert. And happened again when Solomon dedicated the Temple in Jerusalem. It reminds us today that while respect for servants is required, it is also imperative that public servants understand the role of staves.
Moreover, what happens when a leader forgets his or her primary purpose and while claiming to do good, maybe even the will of the Deity, he or she is in fact, harming the people? Will they learn the lesson? Or will they just ignore it and hope that nobody notices?
