Biblical Faith – with Shmuel “Sam” Peak
When you prosper and when you suffer, when you intend to serve HaShem and when you consider sin.
If its arrows do not reach you in the ways mentioned, it will lie in wait for you in your seasons of prosperity and also when you suffer hardship.
When all is going according to your wishes, it will say to you:
“It is the result of your own effort, ingenuity and cleverness. You should therefore [continue to] exert yourself in your secular airs and labor hard at them, in order to maintain your present standard and even rise above it. Embrace these days happily and take pleasure in them, for n a very short while you will be called by name, and you will answer HaShem [and descend] into the darkness of the grave, where there is no action or movement, no pleasure or pain.”
