The age in which we live, has
been given many names. It is
called the "atomic age," the "hyd-
rogen age," and very often it is
called the "age of counseling." We
have vocational counselors, fi-
nancial counselors, marriage
counselors, management coun-
selors.
One of the first counselors re-
corded in history, is found in this
week's portion of the Torah. His
name was Jethro. He was the
father-in-law of Moses. He saw
Moses judging the people from
early morning until late at night.
The Torah describes it in these
words: "And when his father-in-
law saw all that Moses was doing Moses: Received sound advice
for the people, he said, 'What is

this thing that you do? Why do

that) but who gives them things;

And Moses said to his father-

people come to me for guidance
and counseling, and I judge be-
tween each man and his

And his father-in-law said unto
Exodus 18:1-20:23.

are doing is not good. Thou wilt

surely wear away."
If Jethro were living today, his
quest for fame and fortune, at the
counsel would have sounded

something like this: "Moses,

That phrase, "take it easy," has hundreds of years ago, is appro-

it easy." But, in addition, take

understand that 50 years ago, be-
fore there were washing
machines, such a reminder would
be appropriate. But today, with
all the labor saving devices that
we have, we ought to be the least
burdened people in all of recorded
history. Yet, statistics demon-
strate that although our hands
are softer, our hearts are sadder
and heavier. We can do things fas-
ter and with less effort than ever
before, but at what expense to our
bodies and minds and nerves. And
at what expense to our families!
