Omer 2016 Day 15: The women with the baby


Day 15: Chesed in Tiferet, Love in Compassion

"A sword was brought before the king, and the king said, 'Cut the live child in two, and give half to one and half to the other.' But the woman whose son was the live one pleaded with the king, for she was overcome with compassion for her son. 'Please my lord,' she cried, 'give her the child; only don't kill it!' The other insisted, 'It shall be neither yours nor mine; cut it in two!' Then the king spoke up. 'Give the child to her,' he said, 'and do not put it to death; she is its mother.'" (1 Kings 3:24-27)
Today, try to show love and kindness through compassion. Be sincere and you will be rewarded, like the baby's mother, who prized life and love.
