Make the Days of Omer Count-Shabbat Day 25

Day 25 - Netzach of Netzach: Endurance in

Endurance. Everyone has willpower and determination. We have the capacity to endure much more than we can imagine, and to prevail under the most trying of circumstances. Ask yourself: Is my behavior erratic? Am I inconsistent and unreliable? Do I underestimate my capacity to endure?

Exercise for the day: Commit yourself to developing a new good habit.
