Parshat Noach:
Noah was the last righteous person left on earth. G-d destroyed mankind and rebuilt with Noah.
Surprisingly, the ancient Jewish sages call Noah a man of little faith.
Because he didn’t believe in himself.
He didn’t believe G-d would listen to his prayers, so he didn’t pray for his fellows.
He didn’t believe his neighbors would listen to him, so he didn’t challenge the status quo.
And so the world drowned in the torrents of Noah’s timidity.
Don’t repeat his mistake. You were born because G-d has faith in you. He believes you can make a difference.
If you truly believe in G-d, you must also believe in yourself.

-Adapted from Rabbi Levi Yitzchak of Berditchev
