Abundant Kindness

Trust in G-d removes all indictments and severities. This is explained in Reishis Chochmah (Sha-ar Ha’Ahava, Ch. 13) based on the verse (Tehillim 32:10), “but as for him who trusts in the Lord- kindness will encompass him.” The kindness surrounds him and shields him from any litigant, as well as protects him from the calamities of this world.

This kindness is referred to as “abundant kindness,” for it shines without limitations or measurements—even if one is otherwise undeserving.

The essential trait of trust in G-d is to attach oneself to this supernal kindness.

(Igros Kodesh, Tzemach Tzedek, Pg. 363)
