What’s the surest way to get a message to God? The answer is found in this week’s parasha, where we read about the requirement to bring the first fruits up to Jerusalem. “…you shall take from the first yield of all the fruit…you shall put it in a basket…you shall come to the priest…say to him “I have told today to the LORD your God…”  The Sforno says that from here we see that through our actions we communicate with God.  I have told today to the LORD your God – via my actions!
