Birth & Birthdays
What your birth means is that you are G-d’s child. Your birth was not an accident; G-d chooses each of us to fulfill a specific mission in this world, just as a composer lovingly arranges each musical note. Take away even one note, and the composition falls apart. Each person matters; each person is irreplaceable. Your life is always leading you toward your destiny, and every single moment is meaningful and precious.
Many people seem to feel that, just because we didn’t choose to enter the world, our birth is a stroke of coincidence or serendipity. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Birth is G-d’s way of saying that He has invested His will and energy in creating you; G-d feels great joy when you are born, the greatest pleasure imaginable, for the moment of birth encompasses the potential for all future achievements.
