Our sages teach that the 10 Plagues (7 are in this week’s Parasha) were the greatest miracles of all time. Yet, modern scholars try to find natural explanations for each. Can miracles not just be miracles? Interesting that even miracles on the grandest scale are doubted over time. What of the small miracles we experience every day–a smile, warm touch, breathing, walking, having fun…reciprocation of true love? Do you recognize them as such? Do you stop to think about it? B’nai Yisrael struggled as slaves at the hands of their Egyptian oppressors for many, many years to merit the strong, outstretched arm of the Almighty. God heard their cry and their appreciation. What does God hear from you?
