Torah Thought
Our Torah portion, Re'eh, reminds us that the path we walk in life is one of our own choosing.  We are free agents called to choose between blessing and curse.  On this theme, a Chassidic teaching says:  "There are those who serve by walking the high road.  There are those who serve by walking the side road.  There are those who serve by walking a road of their own making: They get there first."  We know there are many paths out there.  How often we worry that ours cannot be right.  We look to others for reassurance, or we strive to imitate them.  May we have faith in ourselves in the life paths we choose, just as others choose theirs.
