The Sermon

Sometimes we have to fight with David to pay attention. And other times he pays attention when we least expect it.

Kinneret told David that if he does X then he will get Y. He responded, "but the rabbi said never to promise to do something only because you want something in return."

At first we had no idea what he was talking about. Then I realized that he was actually repeating the message of a sermon that a guest rabbi had delivered that morning in shul. (It had to do with the take-away message of Yaakov's promise to Hashem at the beginning of va-Yetze.)

I wasn't even paying attention to the rabbi, and yet davka now he was?
