Letting go of the light: A lesson from Abraham for us today

A wayfarer


And God appeared to Abraham at the oaks of Mamre, and Avraham is sitting at the doorway of his tent in the heat of the day. He lifts up his eyes and he sees three men standing before him . Abraham runs to greet them and he bows down to the ground asking them to accept his hospitality.

Why did Abraham break off a communication with God in order to give hospitality to the wayfarers?
What can we learn from this seemingly small act of Avraham’s whose meaning reverberates even now? Indeed,
the acts of our forefathers serve as beacons for us today.

From the teaching of Rabbi Yehudah Lev Ashlag in the Perush Hasulam
