Be A Mensch

"To be a Mensch is to be the kind of person God had in mind when he arranged for human beings to evolve, someone who is honest, reliable, wise enough to no longer be naïve, but not yet cynical, a person you can trust to give you advice for your own benefit, rather than for his or her own. A Mensch acts not out of fear or out of the desire to make a good impression, but out of a strong, inner conviction of who he or she is and what he or she stands for. A Mensch is not a saint or a perfect person but a person from whom all falsehood, all selfishness, all vindictiveness have been burned away so that only a pure self remains. A Mensch is whole and is one with his or her God." Rabbi Harold Kushner

John 5:19
"I'm telling you this straight. The Son can't independently do a thing, only what he sees the Father doing. What the Father does, the Son does. The Father loves the Son and includes him in everything he is doing."
