This week’s Torah Portion teaches us about the Sabbatical year and the giving of the first fruit! every 7 years Israel is commanded to give the land a rest… not to plant any seeds… grow any fruits or vegetables in the holy land. G-D says: “Test Me” the giving of the first fruit on the other hand is all about giving charity joyfully and to keep in mind that all we have belongs to G-D… giving away from the source of who provides for us… the 1st fruit and not the leftovers!
G-D says: “Test Me” when we obey and acknowledge that everything we have belongs to G-D and we give willingly and joyfully of that which is his… we will reap the benefits in huge proportions… unexpectedly!
