VORT ON THE PARSHA
ועפר תאכל כל ימי חייך (בראשית ג:יד)And dust shall you eat all the days of your life.
Chazal says, “Reb Yosi said, come and see the difference between Hashem and a human being. A person who is angered by his friend typically bears a grudge. Hashem is greater than that. He cursed the snake that he will always have food available, for sand is endless.”
It can seem that the snake benefited since he always has prepared food? The biggest curse is not having the ability to ask Hashem for one’s needs. This is what Hashem told the snake, “Here’s your food, and I don’t want to hear from you!”Go back to Parshas Bereishis
