Who loves you the most?
Sotah 49a דאמרי אינשי "רחמי דאבא אבני, רחמי דבני אבני
דהוו ליה" 'The love of a father, is for his children. The love of his children are for their children." (more
love to your children than to your parents)
We find in this weeks Parsha . Yehudah
was pleading to Yosef to allow Binyomin to return to
his father otherwise his father (Yakov) will
die. Why not plead about the suffering
of Binyomin's ten sons ?
The Kotzker Rebbe answers "From
here we see parents are in more pain when their
children are suffering than the pain children
have when their parents are suffering".
