When Gd wanted to create man, a very sharp confrontation developed between heaven and the angels, and the central question was: Should man be created or not?

The angel of grace and the angel of justice supported the creation of man on the grounds that he would do charity and kindness.

In front of them, the angel of death and the angel of peace objected, saying that the creation of man would be a mistake because it was all lies and quarrels.

What did Gd do? 



The Midrash writes that the Blessed One threw the angel of death into the land, and so there were two angels in favor of the creation of man versus only one angel who resisted and then Gd created man.

Sages explained that the angels even categorized the creation of man and argued before Gd that he would sin and upset the Holy One Blessed be He, and therefore there is no justification for His creation.

And the Holy One answered them: Blessed is he who is called merciful and gracious, and long-suffering.

Even if the person sins, he will repent and I will have mercy on him and forgive him.



We are amazed to hear about friends that a difficult conflict has developed between them.

When we find out "what happened?", It turns out that this is a conflict that started with a small argument.

How can we avoid this?

The Talmud, Tractate Eruvin, page 8, states that when there are two courtyards and there is a deep groove between them, they are still considered separate areas, even if the owner of one of the courtyards filled the groove with hay and straw. Time - so this is one yard, but if there is a high pile of hay between the two yards, two yards are still considered.

Can separate but not connect.

How is the same hay used as a building material but but also treated with disregard in another case?

The Amora Abbey explained that in the first case the hay needs to be connected, and for that it is not enough but to separate, hay is also enough.

Rabbi Chaim David Kowalski, presenter of the

digital gemara

, explained that "this is how it is in human relations."

He said, "To reconcile between two friends who have quarreled, it is not enough to do something temporary. You need a real, strong and permanent connection, but to create a dispute, something small, insufficient is enough." 



The holy angels categorized before Gd that He would not create man because it was his nature to quarrel, quarrel and quarrel but our job is to know how to activate ourselves in the best way.

Now, we know more detail about how our nature, and thus we will know how to conduct ourselves better in our lives, we too in an inner look but also in front of our friends and those around us.
