Lessons from פרשת וירא

The של״ה הקודש lists certain lessons to be learned from פרשת וירא. Here are a few: When one does a favor for someone as Avraham did for the angels, he should make the recipient feel that it is actually HE that is doing the favor. Avraham fulfilled the Mishna in Pirkei Avot, אמור מעט ועשה הרבה, "Say a little. Do a lot." He told the angels he was giving them a little bread. His meal was a feast. It is important to have good manners in someone else's home. The angels pretended to eat in order to be good guests. And lastly, a father should write written instructions for his children to read after his death as to how to lead their lives. We learn this when Hashem says that He knows what Avraham will instruct his children. Interesting and practical lessons from a very holy rabbi. Shavua Tov
