Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.
The question today is do we get excited about trials and tribulations? I don’t know about you but I have a hard time getting excited about that. But God is saying that if I can get through the hard times that I don’t bring on myself that I will receive a crown of life. We can’t get bitter in life but better. There will be trouble but it’s really about how we choose to handle it.
