No Pain, No Gain

Sometimes life seems to be little more than an endless stream of problems to solve and obstacles to overcome. Whether our difficulties are personal, communal or national, there seems to be no escaping them. Occasionally their sheer number or weight causes a person to lose faith. Why does G-d send difficulties our way?

Difficulties and misfortune are not “bad” or punishments, but challenges. Challenges are the primary vehicle for testing our mettle and seeing what we’re really made of. In the field of health and exercise, everyone knows, “No pain, no gain.”
