‘Signs of daybreak’ (Source unknown)
A rabbi once asked his students how they could tell when night had ended and day was on its way back.
‘Is it when you can see an animal in the distance, and can tell whether it is a sheep or a dog?
‘No,’ answered the rabbi.
‘Is it when you can look at a tree in the distance, and tell whether it is a fig or a peach tree?
Well then,’ the students demanded, ‘when is it?’
It is when you look on the face of another human being, and see that he or she is your brother or sister. Because if you cannot do that, then no matter what time it is, it is still night.’
Pray for the light of love to shine in and through us.
