Sometimes change, whether personal, professional, or spiritual, is necessary for success. But how often do we stick to the path that we are on simply because we are already on it? How often do we forget that each moment of our lives contains within it a choice—to keep moving in the same direction or to change courses? In the story of the Akedah there is a pivotal moment when Abraham decides not to kill his son, and this moment changes the course of not only Abraham and Isaac’s lives, but the lives of the entire Jewish people.
