Sedra Ki SaVo, 120 Words: The Cohen Who Isn’t Here
You will go to the Cohen who be around in your days. [26:3]
Is there any alternative?
Could we go to the Cohen who died last year, or the Cohen who is yet to be born?
But this is Gd’s way of saying
I am in charge
You know why you have this Cohen who you consider to be sub-standard?
Because I chose him
and I reckon he’s the best for you.
That’s a life philosophy
we can’t say
“If I was Gd
I would do it differently”
