Let’s think of things in this week’s Parshah that start with C. Cookie starts with C. But we need to think about Parshat Vayeira.
Circumcision starts with the letter C. Abraham circumsized himself at age 99. Ouch that must have really hurt!
City, that starts with the letter C. Abraham plead with G-d to spare the wicked city of Sodom. Two angels came to his nephew Lot’s house and an angry mob tried to hurt them. Lot protected the angels and the angels protected him.
Cave, that starts with the letter C. After fleeing the city, Lot and his two daughters took shelter in a cave. They thought they were the only people left in the world…so they slept with their father and got pregnant. Gross.
Conceive, that starts with the letter C. G-d remembered his promise to Sarah and she gives birth to her son Issac.
Crying, that starts with the letter C. Sarah banishes her slave who’s also the mother of Ishmael, Abraham’s other son. Ishmael is dying the in desert and cries. Sooo sad. And G-d saves his life.
Commandment, that starts with the letter C. G-d commands Abraham to sacrifice Issac. But before he can do it, G-d stops him and replaces Isaac with a ram.
Just looking for the letter C in this week’s Torah portion helped me find many important lessons. You should look through the Torah and find your lesson! But be careful…it’ll make you hungry for more coookies!!!
