God Encourages Perseverance
James 1:2-4 speaks about the importance and value of perseverance. We can learn from this little squirrel!
I speak from personal experience, recovering from a brain tumor is not easy! Overcoming ANY adveristy is a challenge. However, we are given trials to bring about our refinement and sanctification. Endure and persevere for, like this squirrel discovers, there is a great reward at the end of the race.
” Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.” James 1:2-4(NIV)
