Vulnerability Redefined

For the longest time there was a point of resistance that was hard to overcome to fully appreciate the idea that G-d Needs our Mitzvos and I heard it from people all the time. It was based on the following posuk:

“Sof davar hakol nishma et-ha’Elokim yira, v’et-mitzvotaiv shemor ki-ze kol ha’adam.” The sum of the matter, when all is said and done: Revere G-d and observe His commandments! For this applies to all mankind.

Kohelet12:13

Based on this it seems that G-d is not really vulnerable because it will happen eventually. However, I took the time to sit down with Rabbi Manis and record this 9 min audio and it became clear as to what vulnerability really means.

Basically, it came down to answering this question:

“If I know that I am going to get what I need, do I need it less?”
