James 1:2-6

My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience.

But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing. If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.

But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind.



Greetings Bible Enthusiast!

How many of us would say that they are always patient? Probably very few. Often our impatience causes us to do and say things that we later regret.

The Bible tells us that trials will come and that we should welcome them, even with joy. That may be hard to accept until we realize the reason why: that the testing of our faith through trials produces patience; that wonderful, often elusive quality that we all desire.

We can ask God, in faith, for the wisdom to deal with whatever trials come our way.

God Bless You!

--ANSWER TO TRIVIA QUESTION:

Q. Once in Egypt, to whom was Joseph sold?

A. Potiphar


Now the Midianites had sold him (Joseph) in Egypt to Potiphar, an officer of Pharaoh and captain of the guard.

Genesis 37:36

As the story continues, Joseph gains the trust and admiration of Potiphar and is put in charge of his entire estate. What a industrious person Joseph must have been.
