    OMER COUNT - WEEK 4 - - Moses
    APRIL 20 - APRIL 26
    NETZACH – ENDURANCE
    During the fourth week of counting the Omer, we examine and refine the emotional attribute of endurance known as Netzach. Netzach means endurance, fortitude and ambition and is a combination of determination and tenacity. It is a balance of patience, persistence and guts. Endurance is also being reliable and accountable, which establishes security and commitment.

    Without endurance, any good endeavor or intention has no chance of success. Endurance means to be alive, to be driven by what counts. It is the readiness to fight for what you believe, to go all the way.

    This, of course, requires that endurance be closely examined to ensure that it is used in a healthy and productive manner.

    Day 22 – Iyar 7 – April 20 - Chesed of Netzach: Loving-kindness in Endurance
    Psalm 119:169-176; I Cor. 15:57-58

    For anything to endure it needs to be loved. A neutral or indifferent attitude will reflect in a marginal commitment. If you have difficulty making commitments, examine how much you love and enjoy the object that requires your commitment. Do I love my work? My family? My choices? For endurance to be effective it needs to be caring and loving.

    Does my endurance cause me to be, or seem to be, inflexible? Does my drive and determination cause me to be controlling?

    Am I too demanding? Do others (my employees, friends, children) cooperate with me out of the sheer force of my will and drive, or out of love?

    Exercise for the day: When fighting for something you believe in, pause a moment to ensure that it is accomplished in a loving manner.

    Love always Walter and Debbie
