Today, I came across this quote in Midrash Mechilta.
”At the Splitting of the Sea, a servant girl saw what Isaiah, Ezekiel and all other prophets did not behold.”
At first, this seems amazing- unbelievable, even. But as we look further into the Chassidus and the teachings of the Rebbe, we realise that it is perfectly in line with Jewish thought. What does this passage say? Essentially, that no matter how small you think you are, you are as important as the most amazing gedolim we have known. Your worth is inherent. You- the person reading this right now- possess a spark of Moshe or Miriam!
The most inspiring people come from surpising backgrounds. Moshe Rabbenu grew up privileged in Mitzrayim, and yet it was he who led the rebellion against Pharaoh. Don’t let your past hold you back. No matter how humble you are, no matter how small you feel compared to great rabbonim and sages, you are important to Hashem and you have the power to bring yourself- and others- out of ‘Mitzrayim’.
So what are you waiting for? We need Moshiach NOW!
