Shalom yeladim. This week’s Parsha is Vayeishev, meaning '"and [Ya'akov] settled". I am certain that at one time or another we have desired to do something that we knew was wrong. We know it is wrong but we still want to do it anyway. Sometimes we begin thinking about it, we realize what we want to do really is too bad to do? So, instead of doing what we originally wanted to do, we decided to do something less bad. Well, this is what we find in this week's Parsha. Joseph’s brothers hate Joseph so much they want to kill him, but instead of killing him, they decide to sell him into slavery. Always remember that doing something less bad is still doing something bad. What if instead they had not sold him into slavery, do you think G-D would have brought salvation to Egypt and the famine? Yes G-D is good, but since we cannot know what is ahead of us is is always better to do what is right, and know that G-D will bring blessings in abundance to those who do well. This week remember if you become angry, or jealous look for ways that you can do good, instead of evil. Stand where you are angry and think of ways that good can come out of the circumstances that have you feeling mad. How can the world be better, instead of worse? Sometimes this is as simple as communicating with the person(s) that are in the circumstances. Simply speaking about why we are upset, and asking adults how we should act when we are upset, often changes things for the positive.
