The Alter Rebbe on Parshas Boi

The Alter Rebbe teaches an amazing concept, which is that there are two types of Loves: A Love Like Water, and a love like fire.

The love like water is the love like a father to a son, which is consistent, and we understand that that’s the kind of love that God has to us.

The love like fire, is the understanding that even though all the universes, with the trillions above us, and all the angels and the souls within them, and they all serve God; yet it is US, He has chosen down here on Earth to connect with Us, to guide us, and this is the ultimate contraction of self – like a father playing with their little baby, so the father may be the greatest President or Prime Minister yet they lower themselves completely into the realm of the child.
