Everything Has Its Season

In the famous section of Ecclesiastes that begins 'Everything Has Its Season' there is a phrase, "He has made everything beautiful in its time." (ch. 3 v. 11)...

In Koheles Raba the Sages comment on this verse, "The Torah should have been given to Adam. G-d reconsidered and gave it to his descendents, because He appoints a time for everything He does... as is meant by "Beautiful in its time." Time supplies appropriateness, relevence and necessity for a matter.

Adapted from "on the Essence of Chassidus" by R. Menachem Mendel Shneerson z'l p. 95
