Parashat Lech lecha (Go for yourself)
Abraham was skeptical. He didn't know how he was going to become a big nation as G-d promised.
G-d answers: "Look now toward heaven, and number the stars, if thou be able to number them so shall thy seed be."
Whenever I think of a picture or a drawing of Abraham, I have that image, Abraham looking up at the stars.
And, to be honest, I think there is a deeper message in that image. Whenever you are skeptical, whenever you do not have answers, look up.
Psalm 121: I will lift up mine eyes unto the mountains: From whence shall my help come?
My help comes from Hashem, Who made heaven and earth.
