The Frog Lesson

Don't beat the Frog.
Initially , our Sages explain , Hashem sent one giant frog. When they beat it it kept on multyplying.

This serves as a lesson for us. Hashem sends us tests which we need to learn to ignore & overcome. Don't make the mistake of getting entangled & entrapped. Have a great Shabos.

Moshe Rabeinus Tehilim

Moshe composed 11 of the chapters of Tehilim , from 90 to 100. Thus by studying these chapters carefully we can gain insights into how Moshe thought & succeeded.
For example , he says
You Hashem have been our dwellling in every generation.
Whether Moshe was in
Paarohs palace ,
The fields of Midian ,
Yisro s house ,
In his tent in the Midbar - he realized he was actually in Hashems dwelling !!
