One of my favorite verses in james chapter 1 is verse 5 - "if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him."

There are many smart people in the world, but wisdom is different than knowledge.

I had always heard that the testing of our faith produces perseverance. But this verse started having a deeper meaning for me when I read verse 4

"Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything."

It is not just for the sake of developing the good quality of "perseverance" but each time your faith is tested, you are one step closer to becoming the complete version of who God created you to be, mature in your walk with Him. And understanding THAT, really motivates me! bounce

I like that Robyn. I need to think on the more today! Good food for thought!

reading thru the chapter reminded me that without trial, there is not going to be much growth or character development. Growth is in hidden in the trials. I feel like i am so programed to avoid pain and trials and not walk thru it with an attitude of "I am going to conquer you" with faith and whatever that i already have been given.

is like having a gym membership but avoiding pain, not much change is going to come from easy workouts. no pain = no muscles = no capacity
