Welcome the test…

Do not confuse the temptations of the world, the flesh and the Devil with the testing of God. Remember, God tempts no one. When we experience the testing of God, we realize that the events around us are meant to build character and to bring us to a greater maturity. Many followers of Jesus want to be mature, yet they argue against the very circumstances that bring about this maturity. When your circumstances test you today, join St. James in counting them as joy because when they have completed their work you will be a much more mature person at the end of the day (James 1:2-4) – Ron Friesen
