Parsha Toldot - Chapter 26 - Verses 1 - 3
"Kitzur Shulchan Aruch, cont - making blessings"
There is a famine in the land. Hashem tells Yitzchak not to go to Egypt as his father did but stay in Israel as holy people belong in Israel. Yitzchak having been bound as a sacrifice, is holy and cannot be around the immorality of Egypt. Hashem tells Yitzchak to dwell in this land of Israel, and He will be with him. We should think of oneself as a giyur (a convert) because we are temporary residents of this world. Don’t become so comfortable and settled in THIS world. DWELL in this world; we will LIVE in the next.
