Growing Pains

Reading: James 1:1-12

Key Verse: James 1:2-4 Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds,  3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.  4 Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.

Godly wisdom is called for to enable us to face trials with joy.

As humans we naturally are earth bound in our perspective. However we are to get our thinking in line with God’s thinking. God’s Word calls upon us to have such an attitude of life such that we can have joy in our unhappy trails because we can see beyond them the good that God is working in us through the trails.

This attitude calls for true wisdom which is from God, who is willing and able to give to those who really desire it.
