Re:Verse passage – James 1:1-12 (day six)
So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing. James 1:4
Pastor Bryan is absolutely right, there is nothing trite or trivial about the sentiment in these verses. The hopefulness in these verses does not only point to what is on the other side of suffering, but also to the goodness of trials themselves. James is not asking us to grin and bear it, but to understand that in God’s economy he does not waste anything; for even in the moments that seek to rob us, God intends to give.
