Rav Ferris Bueller Omer
It’s good advice. He even gives it again
Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once and a while, you could miss it. Rav Bueller was wise.
And perhaps that’s part of the message of Pesach. The holiday makes us do things differently–it makes these nights different from all other nights. As a result, we notice the ordinary in a new way. Perhaps we should give ourselves the opportunity to stop from the norm more often and look around. Maybe part of what we can take from Pesach is to use the opportunity that Shabbat brings more often. Perhaps that’s where our personal redemption from the day to day can begin.
