We know that everything is from HASHEM. We also know that we must do our part – our hishtadlus. In theory, it is easy to find the balance. I must act according to the ways of the world, knowing all the while that HASHEM runs everything. But actually performing that tightrope walk between bitachon and proper hishtadlus is one of the great challenges of life. How hard should I be working? How seriously should I take medical reports and new findings? When is it appropriate for me to say, “I’ve done my part. Now it’s in HASHEM’s hands”?
Drawing on some inspiring examples of perfect bitachon, this Shmuz helps us put our belief system into practice.
