Rabbi Daniel Rabin, Rabbi of the North Eastern Jewish Centre in Doncaster spoke today at the Chabad of Melbourne CBD about the Four Vital Questions one is asked when the soul comes before the Supreme Court in Heaven. Theses questions actually reflect what one should be asking himself in this world.
The first question is, were you honest in business? A deeper dimension to this is, were you honest about what your life's mission in this world is? The second question is, Did you have children or alternatively did you ensure that the next generation receive their proper Jewish Education. The third question is, did you set fixed times to learn Torah? Even if you're busy and don't have much time, have those two minutes a day or half hour a week which you set aside for Torah Study come what may.
And finally the fourth question, did you anticipate the redemption? Moshiach will bring peace into the world. On a personal and more practical level, are you trying to live a Moshiach life style and solve any fights or arguments that you may have? As a result of this we will merit the final global redemption with the coming of Moshiach now!
