We all have what to contribute to making the world a better place.
Each and every person has a role to play.
Not only that. Each and every thing has a role to play.
In other words, every living thing, and every inanimate thing, has what to contribute towards a better world.
Inanimate things don’t have the ability to choose. But we can choose to utilize them for good purposes.
Animals don’t have the ability to choose between right and wrong. But we can choose how we interact with them, compassionately and not cruelly.
So people can choose right from wrong. And those choices involve how we use the world. and how we interact with fellow human beings.
The Torah tells us what to do. The Torah teaches us how to make our world a peaceful place, where G-dliness shines.
We each reside in certain places. There are a certain number of residences in each town or city. Every city is part of a country. Every country is part of a continent. And each continent is part of the world.
Sometimes when we, each individual, sit in our abode, we wonder how our actions affect the rest of the world. And visa versa, how actions in North Korea or Russia or Ukraine or China affect us.
I remember a bumper sticker as a kid: Just one nuclear bomb can ruin your whole day.
So how can a person feel confident and at ease, knowing that this scary potential is out there.
The answer: Moshiach and Redemption is very close. The prophets predicted it. Our ancestors believed it, and transmitted this belief throughout the generations.
Moshiach is real. And many signs point to it. Current events are accurately described in the prophecies.
So when we start to worry what will be, we can push it away with joyous optimism that very soon we will see the complete Redemption.
And then we will truly appreciate the role that everything had, in bringing the ultimate Redemption.
And then everyone will be at peace, with themselves, and with the entire world.
