We are told that there were 2 miracles in the chanukah ‘story’… 1st that the small Maccabees were able to defeat the Greeks. 2nd that the small bottle of oil lasted for 8 days.
Many people might think that these miracles were something that happened years ago and has no relevance to us today. However I feel that there is an idea within this miracle.
Many times it could be that the negative thoughts, the yetzai hara feel stronger than our yetzai tov and positivity. However just like the small army was able to defeat the Greeks so to can our personal battles be overcome and our positive, good prevail.
Happy Chanukah and may we all be able to use these days to take a small step in our personal battles.
