Chayei Sarah - The Humble Servant Makes The Shidduch
Eliezer is the ultimate servant of Avraham Avinu and yet despite his exceptional dedication Avraham Avinu does not see fit to make a shidduch with the daughter of Eliezer. Why then does he trust Eliezer to find a shidduch for Yitzchak? If Eliezer is trustworthy enough to make a shidduch, why is his daughter not a good match for Yitzchak? In this shiur, delivered in MMY, Rav Burg explains how exceptional humility is the fertile soil for love to occur but absolute humility does not make a good partner.
