Last week we talked about ways you can help out people who might need your help this summer. In this week's portion, we are again told not to forget the needy. This time the Torah uses the words "do not harden your heart." Who else hardens their heart in the Torah? Pharaoh, of course! Pharaoh gets so used to hardening his heart, that at some point, it becomes the only reaction he can have. Can you think of a time when you "hardened your heart" and refused to give in or help someone? The Torah says: Do not do this too often, for it will become a habit hard to break.
