Burdens And Trials A Necessity?

BIBLE MEDITATION:
“Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.” James 1:3

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:
A man had a grandfather clock. One day he felt sorry for the grandfather clock because it had a weight on it. And that weight was always pulling on the clock.

The man said, “Oh, Mr. Clock, you’ve held this weight so long, I’m going to remove it and let you rest.”

The clock protested, saying, “Don’t take that weight from me. That’s what keeps me going.”

In the same way, the trials and tests of life are there for your endurance. They’re to keep you going, keep you trusting, keep you praying, and keep you depending upon God.

ACTION POINT:
When was the last time you shared with someone that they needed to be thankful for their trials? When was the last time you told yourself?
