The Daily Nosh – James 1:2-3
Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. (TLV) James 1:2-3
Nosh: For those who have given their lives to following God (and that is the key qualifier), life’s trials and challenges, though difficult and even painful, are designed by God to strengthen us, build character and make us successful. What feels like a negative in the present is really a positive in the future. That’s why James says, “Consider it all joy“.
