Everyone deserves a second chance. It’s hard to get things right the first time, even with the best of intentions. The best-laid plans can be useless in the face of external uncertainty.

No one plans to get it wrong. It happens. What we do about it afterwards is what interests God. Do we blame others for messing up, or do we accept ultimate responsibility for our actions, speech, and thought? Do we try to blame things on factors beyond our control, when in fact better planning would have been enough?

God told Moshe that everyone gets a second chance. Everyone has a chance to make-up for lost time, repair what was broken, make better choices. That time is now.

Gut Shabbos-Shabbat Shalom.
