|Pesikta de-Rav Kahana What does God Want From Us?|
|Written by Michael Linetsky|
What do I require of you? Turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways (Ezek. 33:11). He is pleading with them to seek Him and live: Seek ye Me and Live (Amos 5:4).
The Rabbis were divided: Does God expect of us to merely distance ourselves from evil or does He expect us to actively pursue good virtues in order to fulfill his Will.
