Crying Vs. Emunah [#14392]

August 11, 2021


I want to know: If a person has total emunah that everything is from Hashem, does that mean he never cries and never feels pain? If physical pain causes a person to cry does that mean he doesn’t have emunah? Or does it least mean his emunah isn’t perfect? Do we need to get to a point where we never cry because we have total emunah that everything is good?


There is no person whose emunah is perfect. Only Hashem is Perfect. So, inevitably, a human being cries. And there are spiritual reasons that make a person cry: A person cries when he joins with the pain of the Shechinah. And that is not a lack of emunah.
