Moses…spoke to all Israel, saying, “Be still and listen, Israel. This day you have become a nation to the LORD your God. What happened on “this day”? Later we are told: Moses wrote this Torah and gave it to the priests…When that happened, the Midrash explains, again the people complained to Moses, saying: we too stood at Sinai and received the Torah…tomorrow the Levites will come and say the Torah was not given to you…Moses rejoiced and pronounced This day you have become a nation to the LORD your God. Moses waited forty years for the people to voice a legitimate complaint and when they did he rejoiced and said: This day you have become a nation…Part of growing up is knowing how to have the right complaints!
