Tazria – Milah, circumcision and words

    Thanks again for the excellent teaching. Circumcision of the tongue and heart separate us for God. If I'm not mistaken, somewhere in Holy Scripture, it is written that God himself will circumcise our hearts. I think without His help, it is impossible to do. Thanks again!!
