Tevet 28, 5776

Can animals do Gods will?


Rabbi Ari Shvat

Question:
Can animals do Gods will?

Answer:
Animals (like trees and rocks) always (!) do G-ds will because thats how they are programmed. Only man is unique among all creation in that G-d willed us to have free will, to choose between good and bad, to do His will, or not. Rav Kook adds that according to some opinions, in the future ideal world, man may train animals to be more moral, for example, perhaps to no longer be carnivorous (but to be vegetarians).
