Counting the Omer Day 5
Today is Hod she b'Chesed - a day of humility in a week of loving kindness.
Love is a strong emotion that we can get swept up in--whether it's romantic love, love of actions or things, or even an altruistic love of mankind. There is an arrogance to love that can lead us to a place of self-importance that excludes those around us. Adding humility to the mix can create the opening that is necessary for true love to flourish.
