At this time of year we hear, over and over again, that deep inside us we want to do the right thing. This is the thrust of the stories and sermons that pepper this season but what is the source for this idea? The Torah promises that And the LORD your God shall circumcise your heart and the heart of your children to love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your being…This is the source for the idea, the Malbim explains, that deep inside we wish to do the right. If only we can remove the layers that cover our heart then we will learn that our true desire is to love the LORD your God with your heart and will all your being.
