I met a teenager, a young man who is growing close to Torah life. “Rabbi,” he asked me, “how can we be expected to be able to watch where we look, to guard our eyes in public…are we angels?
That was his question.
I turned to him, “A malach?” No, you’re not a malach, you’re not an angel… You’re something much stronger – you’re a human being! You have the capacity to choose, the strength to fight, powers that no angel has!
“You’re so much more”
~ R’ Boruch Mordechai Ezrachi
