Good enough

This comes from Yaakov Sandler, on Facebook:

People often ask me –
‘Isn’t it good enough for me to just be a good person ?’

My reply…..

How do you define good ?
Hitler thought he was doing the greatest good for mankind.
What you or I think is good, or even what 51% of humanity says is good may not objectively be good.

  1. Indeed, you’re right. The ONLY way good can be determined is if it fits Torah’s definition or sense of good.

    Similarly, the only way we know, really, that there IS a world beyond our eyes is because – Torah tells us – “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”
