An address to the children of Camp Gan Israel New York
One time, a wagon got stuck in the mud, and the non-Jewish driver poked his head into the Baal Shem Tov's synagogue, asking his disciples for help to pull the wagon out. The disciples replied: "We're sorry, but we aren't strong enough to lift it." The man replied: "You can, but you don't want to." The Baal Shem Tov later explained the man's words as a fundamental lesson: Don't convince yourself that you aren't strong enough. G-d grants the strength to achieve all good things -- and if you truly want it, you will succeed.
