Whenever, Because, So That

James 1:2-4Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. (NIV 1978)

My Musings – Trials will come. We need not be joyful about the trial itself, but we should be joyful about what it can produce in our lives.

My Advice – Persevere under trials. Do not despair. Do not give up. Look for the lesson. Ask God what He is trying to show you or teach you, and learn the lesson well.

I was raised in a Christian family and my earliest childhood memories include regular Sunday school and Church attendance as a family. I was taught that our Judeo-Christian values were not just a part of our Sunday routine they should be part of our character and influence all aspects of our lives. I was also taught that as important as these values were they could not save us. We must also be “born again” by accepting Christ.
