Knocked Down


“The Great Rabbis tell us that ‘Sheva Yipol Tzaddik Vakam‘ – A Righteous Man is Knocked Down Seven Times, and stands up again. Some people explain this to mean that it’s ‘through’ that cleansing process that he becomes great. It’s through standing up again, trying again, trusting again, loving again, connecting again when it would seem to make sense to give up, when we’re tired and have given up trying, that we become great. So, whatever your challenge is today, don’t give up. Try again. Trust again. Love again. Hope again. And if you feel weak, ask G-d to help you do for yourself, what you cannot do.”  ~ Bringing Heaven Down to Earth by Tzvi Freeman
