Continuing in the theme of “Why Endure?”, Rabbi Steve Berkson ponders if a human being can live without limitations. If we can do all things through Messiah who strengthens us, where are the limitations? Who imposed them?

Rabbi Steve takes us first to James 5 where we see the duty we have been given to “establish your heart” in order to patiently endure and wait for the plan of Yahweh to play out.

In James 1 we see that the writer has completely lost his mind when he says to “count it all joy when you fall into various trials”. How can anyone do that? But going on he clarifies by saying that you should know that the proving of your belief works endurance. So, it is the trial that gives opportunity to show Yahweh where you stand, and endure even though you may be mistreated unfairly or unjustly.
