Chesed

Do you know what mission you have, in life?

And do you love yourself? Not the way you think you should be, or by trying to look like someone else, or like others say you should be, no, really loving yourself as you are.

But we are truly blessed and rich when we know Him who made us, and honor and love Him beyond everything else, and know it is He, Who calls us to a higher purpose.


We start acting from the point of resting, in Him. Then we can do what we are called to do in this life, and the peace surpass understanding has reached the point of perfection. - Mamme D'Vorah





In the Jewish tradition, kindness is expressed with the Hebrew word chesed (beginning with a “ch” sound, as in the word Chai.

Chai (חי) is the Hebrew word for life.)

The word chesed means so much more than simply an act of “loving-kindness.”


Chesed means giving oneself fully, with love and compassion.


And if we allow G-d* to have the steering wheel of our life in HIS hands, and we rest in Him, the kindness we share is enriched with HIS grace, and unconditional love!



*Yeshua *Abba
