Ensuring Their Tomorrow

he will kill me. Who knows
what dangers I will yet face?"
But the call persists: "Jacob,
I know how tired you are, but
climb, just climb." Because of
that ascent, Jacob received
Divine blessing.
For most of us, courage con-
jures up images of soldiers go-
ing over the top, firemen
entering burning buildings to
save helpless victims, or other
feats of daring. This is one
kind of courage, but the word
means more.
Courage is the willingness
to risk failure to create a new
and better reality. Courage is
the ability to pick ourselves
up after loss and pain, and to
go about the business of liv-
ing. Courage is the remark-
able human resilience which
enables us to suffer loss and
to continue to live and
celebrate life. Courage can be
defined as "passionate per-
sistence" whose brillant ex-
pression can be seen in the
heroic history of the Jewish
people, the descendants of
Jacob.
The story of Jacob's dream
suggests that wherever we
are and, whatever our cir-
cumstance, though we too
might lie down at night with
fear and uncertainty — with
concern and doubt, we have
the potential of arising
refreshed, realizing that we
are in God's presence and
with this knowledge, we can
continue and merit God's
- blessing. ❑
