On Shabbat we will read in the synagogue Parshat Beshelach in which the Israelites leave Egypt after years of difficult exile.

The Rebbe Rabbi Yosiah Pinto sharpened in his lesson an important message that can be taken into our daily lives.

Rabbi Pinto referred to the verse "And Moses took the bones of Joseph with him" and brought to this the words of the Gemara which says the Gemara (Suta 13.) , that all of Israel were busy with looting, and he was busy with the commandment that says "A wise heart will take unleavened bread" (Proverbs 10:8). A strong difficulty must be made, because our Rabbi Moshe had no right to take anything from Egypt, our holy sages say that the tribe of Levi was not in slavery and did not work in Egypt , then they have no right to take even from the property of the Egyptians because only someone who was enslaved and the Egyptians tortured him could take from the plunder of Egypt.

And our holy masters say more about Korah.

All that deteriorated and all the bad that came, because he was the only one from the tribe of Levi who took from the plunder.

So why does the Holy Torah praise Moshe Rabbeinu, a wise man, who took a mitzvah that he did not go to take from the plunder and went to take the bones of Joseph? After all, he was not allowed to take from the plunder because he is from the tribe of Levi and did not work in the land of Egypt?

Rather, it can be interpreted and said this way, Rabbi Pinto explains, Moses was the bringer and the bringer before Pharaoh, he was also in slavery, he had to flee from Pharaoh, he sat in the house of the prisoners. in the enslaved fence. And what is stated in our holy rabbis that Pharaoh was the incarnation of Cain and Moses was the incarnation of Abel, so surely he was allowed to take what in the previous incarnation Cain took for Abel. But in any case, even if it was permissible for Moses to take from the plunder, Moshe barred himself And he did not touch anything in the plunder and there Moshe bought great virtues in his soul.

According to him, a person needs to know a great fundamental, there are many things in life that a person can do and the Halacha also allows him to do the thing, but as soon as a person blocks himself and does not do it, he achieves great mistakes that are second to none.

Many people have achieved worlds because they deserved something, and they worked on their standards and did not do what they deserved.

When a person oversteps his bounds and gives up things he deserves, he gains and receives things that cannot be imagined or described.

This is what happened with Moses, Moses exceeded his standards and did not take anything from the property of the land of Egypt and thanks to this he won great things.
