Divine control and Free will


An interesting approach to the problem of believing in both Divine self-determination and Human free will:

"Effort is greatly required for any positive accomplishment, whether in mundane matters or in spiritual matters. Although everything is in the hands of Heaven, I have already declared that sometimes the Divine wisdom decrees that a certain event will occur based upon a person's effort and care."

(R' Eliezer Papo, Pele Yoetz, Hishtadlut)

Have a great day,
