"Many spend their lives seeking honor; but what does it mean to truly achieve honor? The word for honor in Hebrew, Kavod, has two implications: It can be related to the word Kaveid, liver, something heavy and cold, or it can refer to Divine Glory. The Talmudic sage Rabbi Yose taught; " It is not a person's place that honors him, but it is the person who brings honor to his place." Our souls came to this world to make it better and more G-dly place, and we were also given the necessary strength to do so. When our place and circumstances do not make us cold and indifferent, but it is we who bring Divine light to our place, elevating the world, we bring true honor to ourselves, the world around us, and to G-d."
