Chaim starts out by saying some things are worth giving everything for, and he asks his viewers to write in the comments section if there’s something they’d be willing to give everything in exchange for. As he’s speaking, scenes from the reunions of released Israeli hostages with their families play on the screen, and Chaim says he was recently able to go home on furlough to visit his own family. He says that this visit reminded him of the best things in life, including his family and even his little dog who he also misses when he’s away at war.

He gave a shout out to the Oketz canine units of the IDF, who sniff out explosives and do many other dangerous and important jobs. He says that sometimes the dogs die in battle, and he quotes John 15:13; Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

He also mentions that leaders of many nations around the world are taking a stand either with Israel or against it, and this reminds him of Matthew 25:31-45;

“When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory. All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats. And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left. Then the King will say to those on His right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.’

“Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink? When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You? Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’

“Then He will also say to those on the left hand, ‘Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels: for I was hungry and you gave Me no food; I was thirsty and you gave Me no drink; I was a stranger and you did not take Me in, naked and you did not clothe Me, sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.’

“Then they also will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to You?’ Then He will answer them, saying, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.’ And these will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”

He then says that the men and women he’s serving with in the IDF are heroes and although he loves his family, he would be willing to die for his comrades and the country they’re all protecting. He thanks his viewers for sending him the money the Aliyah Return Center needs to buy bulletproof vests for the soldiers and other equipment they need. The video then shifts to a montage of “normal” Israelis with normal jobs and lives who serve in the IDF and routinely save the world.
