Rabbi Yoself Leib Bloch used to say that regardless of how high a level a person is on, he always has natural tendencies that bring him down. This is the very nature of man.
Rather than allowing those tendencies to keep us down, we should strengthen ourselves and try with all our might to continue to elevate ourselves.
For this reason the Torah writes about the faults and transgressions of even the greatest of men. This can console us and teach us that it is normal to have faults. ~ Shiurai Daas as quotes by R’ Zelig Pliskin
