Leading a Full Life

Moshe lived a full life for G-d. He did what He was supposed to do lead us out of Egypt to Mount Sinai so we would become G-d’s people separated out for HaShem’s use only.

Moshe is the shining example for all us in how to live a full life for G-d.

Moshe is the prophet to the prophets.

Moshe was G-d’s personal stenographer.

Moshe gave us the Torah. This our instruction book on how to live and please G-d.

Moshe was the only one who had a face to face with G-d.

Moses informed the Jewish people that this day, the 7th of Adar, was his 120th birthday, and would also be the day that he would die.

[Moses] told [the people], “Today I am exactly 120 years old.” Deuteronomy 31:2

The fact that even Moses’ last year of life was not left unfinished indicates that he lived his life to its fullest, wasting no time and not leaving undone any part of the task with which he was charged.

The fact that Moses’ physical life so perfectly mirrored his spiritual life indicated that he successfully overcame the division between the spiritual and the material: his spiritual perfection was mirrored in this manifestation of physical perfection.

Moses’ life should inspire us to live our own lives to the fullest, the consciousness of our Divine mission permeating every minute and every item in our lives. When we do so, we dissolve the artificial division of the spiritual and the physical, revealing the innate Divinity underlying all reality. Sefer HaSichot 5752, vol. 1, pp. 134–137
