Omer Week 2 - Gevurah

omer-week2

by Adam Millson

Week 2 of the Omer (April 27th-May 3rd): Gevurah

“In your struggle against sin, you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood. And have you completely forgotten this word of encouragement that addresses you as a father addresses his son? It says,

“My son, do not make light of the Lord’s discipline,

and do not lose heart when he rebukes you,

because the Lord disciplines the one he loves,

and he chastens everyone he accepts as his son.”

Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as his children. For what children are not disciplined by their father? If you are not disciplined—and everyone undergoes discipline—then you are not legitimate, not true sons and daughters at all. Moreover, we have all had human fathers who disciplined us and we respected them for it. How much more should we submit to the Father of spirits and live! They disciplined us for a little while as they thought best; but God disciplines us for our good, in order that we may share in his holiness. No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it. Therefore, strengthen your feeble arms and weak knees. “Make level paths for your feet,” so that the lame may not be disabled, but rather healed.” -- Heb 12:4-13

Gevurah is usually used to mean power but can also mean discipline and focus. Gevurah includes the power to control oneself and keep on task. Discipline itself is an interesting word; the author does not use it in a sense that means the same as gevurah, but instead describes actions that inspire gevurah.

Omer Week 1 - Chesed

omer-week1

by Adam Millson

“Then you are to count from the morrow after the Shabbat, from the day that you brought the omer of the wave offering, seven complete Shabbatot. Until the morrow after the seventh Shabbat you are to count fifty days, and then present a new grain offering to Adonai.” -- Lev. 23:15-16 (TLV)

We count from the day after Passover to Shavuot, the grain harvest festival also known as Pentecost. During the Omer, Jews count how many days it has been since the beginning of the Omer. Traditionally, you count after nightfall on each day and recite several blessings. Traditions have also risen up to help us use this time to reflect on ourselves and our lives and improve ourselves. One such tradition is the association of a sefirah with each week of the count. The sefirot are the Kabbalistic attributes of G-d, most of which can be reflected in human life. During the Omer, one spends time each day reflecting on an aspect of the sefirah of that week. In the spirit of this tradition, we’ve compiled seven devotionals, one for each week, that reflect on the sefirah of the week through texts from the book of Hebrews. I hope that you enjoy them and draw benefit from them.
