Balak 5773

Tuesday, June 18, 2013

After Bilam receives permission to go meet with Balak, he wakes up early and quickly saddles up his donkey to leave as soon as possible. Rashi notes that hatred affects the way a person acts; Bilam was eager to curse Bnei Yisroel. He than contrasts Bilam with Avraham who also got up early and saddles his donkey to fulfill Hashem's request. We see from here that motivation can be used for both good and bad. It's our job to use it just for good.
