Did you ever blame someone for something they said even though they claimed that did it by mistake and did not mean it?   

Did you ever get angry at someone for forgetting to do something?

In this week’s Parasha Vayikra, we learn about the different offerings that had to be brought to the Temple. One of them, the Chatat, had to be offered when someone made a sin by mistake, as part of his repentance procedure. Many ask though, why is repentance needed at all, since the sin was not done on purpose?

Many times, mistakes do not happen by chance. After all, everything comes from our subconscious.  

We will never blurt out something that never crossed our mind.

Something that is indeed very important for us will not be easily forgotten.

We are human and mistakes happen. It’s natural. We are not perfect. But we cannot ignore them. It is an opportunity to explore ourselves and to correct ourselves, not this specific mistake, but the thoughts, the feelings and the priorities that led to it.

Let’s fill our minds and our hearts with positive content and the rest will recede slowly slowly. Remember! Each of our actions and each of our words are meaningful.

Shabbat Shalom,
