James 1:2-4, 1:12

  • when you face trials, know that you are blessed
  • in any given situation, attitude has the power to change everything
  • choose to be JOYFUL
  • a trial is a form of a test of our faith from GOD, and the purpose of this test is to produce endurance in our faith
  • the various trials in our lives is God’s blueprint for our own growth (He wants to shape us into something greater)
  • when trials come our way, we have two options: complain and blame God, or, recognize that God is trying to develop us and that we should take joy in that
  • Joseph, Moses, Abraham
  • trials are not punishments although punishment does await us in hell
