The story of Abraham and the covenant can be connected to all of the concepts I just identified. This story is where the Jewish faith first began.

Every person faces a type of adversity at some point during their lifetime, and in that instance, he or she can choose to give up or persevere. In high school, I was on the football team.

My Grandmother and her family immigrated from Mexico at an early age in a dire attempt to discover a life that bettered their quality of life. She had to tolerate working in fields to make money that then fed her at night. Thrust into adulthood at a very young age, she was forced to mature fast.

Coming into contact with challenges and struggles can seem awful and unwanted at first. But as we get around those struggles and challenges we can look back and be grateful we went through them. Sometimes we can face something so scary it feels as though we will never get through that stage but when we do that person will be so much stronger because they had to go face to face with what scared them.

They might have had to let people go or miss out on things but they persisted in reaching their goal. We need perseverance in life.
