Messages from the past: Live Big card

Next week Jews across the world will celebrate Passover. This is the holiday that celebrates God's deliverance of the Jews from slavery in Egypt. It's an ancient biblical story which seems far away and irrelevant, but the messages from the past can still be heard today.  One of the things we learn from that story is (in modern context) to "live big".

Live big is live life to the fullest, all of us are capable of achieving great things! We are all special, talented and worthy. Just like Moses, who didn't think he can lead the Jewish people and couldn't understand why God chose him, but turned out to be one of the greatest leaders in history, we can also live big, and achieve greatness.  Greatness is not necessarily leading a nation LOL, but lead yourself to better things, not to be afraid and move forward.
