Man Leads the Dance

Think of all the things man creates and G-d learns from. Noah’s offering invents a key form of sacrifice. Avraham’s servant invents prayer (“speaking to my heart”), and is rewarded for it!. Countless other examples I have brought over the years of “measure for measure.”

The radical idea is that G-d may not have known how we would relate to Him – we figured out methods by ourselves! So many laws come from what happens in Genesis – things that G-d did not expect.

I think this is quite a neat theme. It puts so much responsibility on mankind in the driver’s seat.
