We do not sweep away evil when we stone the rebellious son, or the bride who turns out not to have been a virgin. Rather, we do so by mastering the impulse to evil in ourselves.
Those who misunderstand us are not wrong in seeing God’s arranging hand at work in our lives. But that Divine work is not in the orderly appearance of our tents and dwelling places. Rather it is in the possibility that such orderliness places in the Jewish soul.
