The Yom Kippur Bank Account

10 1 1

On Rosh Hashanah, we are inscribed in the book of judgement for the New Year and on Yom Kippur, it is sealed.

What happens between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur is the Ten Days of Repentance. This is when we have a chance to make right that which we did wrong by making amends and committing to doing better in the future.

However, I think our relationship with G-d is complicated. Like we say in Avinu Malkeinu, G-d is our Father and our King. It is a relationship of both love and awe! And we aren’t going to fool G-d with any last minute empty or robotic, “so sorrys.”

Recently, I heard on the TV show, Married at First Sight, the father says to his son who’s getting married (to someone he’s never even met), to treat the relationship with his spouse like a bank account. You want to put in more than you take out. Your deposits should be greater than your withdrawals. That is how you develop relationship savings “for a rainy day.”
