Keep Your Eye on the Ball
This is the advice often given in sports games in which
flinging or kicking or hitting a ball is a crucial element.
It embodies an important lesson that applies in many areas of
life: focus on the key issue, the important subject whose
progress is the main object of interest and do not get
distracted by side issues and sometimes even dramatic
developments that can catch the attention of many other
players in the game but are not important in the long run.
Shelach Lecho: Can We Afford to Trust Ourselves?
When the time came to enter Eretz Yisroel (Bamidbar
13:1,2) "Hashem spoke to Moshe saying, `Send for yourself
men, and let them spy out Eretz Canaan . . .'" Hashem said
"for yourself," since the people came to Moshe asking that
spies be sent to scout out the Land.

In Search of a Uniform
Some people never change their way of life. They fall into a
routine, repeated day-in and day-out. Like an old leather
shoe: No matter how you try to straighten it out, it always
falls back again into its creases.

The intercity bus forges ahead, its engine humming,
swallowing up the kilometers beneath its speeding wheels.
Almost all of the seats are occupied. It is interesting to
see what people do with their time during this journey.
