Our Example – Jesus!

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

Why does God let us go through hard times?

God Loves us, but because of our sinful nature, He allows these things to happen. He knows that by allowing us to experience failure, pain, and struggle, we will grow stronger in our faith and to become closer to Him and moving away from sin.

I have gotten in many a heated exchange with non-believers; how could that not possibly see things the way that I do? Unfortunately, the way that I handled these situations may have driven some non-believers even further away. Tact and wisdom are required, and humility is a virtue that a person with any beliefs can appreciate. Grace and wisdom are required in these exchanges…and everything tastes better with a little salt!

And we pray:

Christ in Heaven, be my guide in my life. Your grace, wisdom, and humility have convinced non-believers for thousands of years, even when they can not see, hear, or feel you personally. Forgive me for my brutish ways in times of anger; I know that I have hardened the hearts of non-believers at times. Give me the patience to hear them as You always hear me, O Lord. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
