30 Days of Liberation: Day 14 – God’s Property

The Seder meal, like all Jewish meals, must begin with a blessing over the food. The Jewish tradition has us bless before we eat because it holds the world belongs to God, not humans. The blessing secures permission to take something that’s not ours. To relate to the world and all it contains as God’s property transforms how he relate to our planet, and to others. In such a world, all the earth is holy. Every thing precious to God. And, if no thing can ever be fully ours, we must be always prepared to share and to give.
