DAILY MITZVAH (Maimonides): Friday, December 16, 2005


Kislev 15, 5766 * December 16, 2005

D A I L Y M I T Z V A H (M A I M O N I D E S )

Today's Mitzvot (Day 105 of 339):

Negative Mitzvah 61

Negative Mitzvah 61: We are forbidden to neglect an oath

-Leviticus 19:12 "And you shall not swear falsely by my Name"

We like our food to be appealing and fresh, and to taste good.

If food doesn't look appetizing or it is stale, we will not put
it in our mouths.

But what about those words that come out of our mouths?

We must be extremely careful about speaking without thinking.

We should never speak in anger, or make empty promises or tell

The Torah wants us to be very careful when we talk, because we
are responsible for everything we say.

If we make a promise or take an oath, we must make sure to
keep it.

We are forbidden to break any oaths we have made.
