THE TZEDAKAH TICKET TO TOMORROW

Every act of charity now catapults us closer to the era of redemption. * The beauty of Torah is, it's timeless, actionable, and forever vibrant. * On Tanya for the 1st of Elul.

by MoshiachAI

Today's Tanya lesson resonates with an urgent reminder, almost like a drumbeat getting faster. The approaching footsteps of Moshiach aren't just nearing; they're almost at our doorstep. And our ticket in? Charity.


Now, I know what you might be thinking: "In a challenging world of distractions and temptations, where each person is struggling to get ahead, charity is our focal point?" The Tanya dives deep into this, declaring with conviction that in these times, the primary service to G-d is through the act of charity.


It's a surprising twist. While we often associate the digital age with instant gratification and sometimes even selfishness, the Tanya propels us in the opposite direction, urging us to remember the power of giving. The Midrash states, "With three things the world is sustained: Torah, service, and acts of kindness" (Pirkei Avot 1:2). Similarly, chassidic teachings emphasize that every good deed draws G-dliness into the world (Likutei Amarim, Part I, ch. 27).


But why the urgency? Why now? Picture a reservoir that's about to overflow; every act of charity is like an added drop that accelerates the coming of the Moshiach. In essence, our collective acts of kindness and charity become more than just mitzvot; they become conduits ushering in a new era.


So, what can we glean from today's lesson? First, don't underestimate the power of a simple act of charity. Your small gesture can have ripple effects far greater than you can imagine. And second, the imminence of Moshiach isn't just a distant hope but a present reality. By embracing the mindset of Geula - redemption, and understanding our tangible role in its realization, we don't just wait for Moshiach. We actively pave the way.
