News Item 259. Mishlei 16-33 (Luck)

new proverb was posted on Wednesday, August 17 in the Mishlei section.

What people fail to realize is that there is no such thing as blind chance. Ultimately everything that happens to a person is the will of Hashem and is likely to be a test of his character. The way he handles his “good” or “bad” luck will give him an opportunity to develop his character or the opposite.

News Item 256. Mishlei 16-32 (Willpower)

new proverb was posted on Wednesday, August 10 in the Mishlei section. This proverb talks about the willpower that enables a person to show forbearance despite a justified feeling of anger. Mishlei compares such willpower to that which a fighter exerts when he forces his enemy to yield to him in a physical struggle. The point that Mishlei is making here is that it takes more willpower to control forces within a person than to make another person to yield to him in battle.

new proverb was posted on Friday, July 22 in the Mishlei section. [The text was subsequently updated on Thursday July 28.]

A serious offense does not happen instananeously. The offender goes through a sequenced progression of thoughts, speech, and action to result in the harm done to another person. During the course of this progression, the offender is likely to give himself away with subtle body language, including movements of the eyes and lips.
