Parasha: Ki Tavo
The Torah commands us to "walk" in the ways of God, but how can mortal human beings walk like the Almighty?
What does it mean to walk in God’s ways? It means that we are to imitate the ways of God (Imitatio Dei). Moses said, “Now, Israel, what does the Lord your God require from you, but to fear the LORD your God, to walk in all His ways …” (Deuteronomy 10:12). The commandment to imitate God is the fundamental principle of godliness. The Master expresses the idea, encouraging us to imitate God, “That you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven” (Matthew 5:45).
