Keeping our Heads Above Water


The Gemara tells us that a father is required to teach his son how to swim.  The secret to swimming is to move along in the water without allowing one’s head to go under. We live in a world that pulls us along, but we must always be careful to keep our heads above the water – not allowing ourselves to be totally dragged under by the constant struggles of daily life. ~ Kotzker Rebbe
