Scripture For The Week “Tough Times Build Character”

Praise Baltimore Listen Live

James 1:2-3 (NLT)

“My brothers and sisters, whenever trouble comes your way, let it be an opportunity for joy. For when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow.


The operative word in this passage is “whenever”. It tells us that we will have troubles in our lives and that it is a time for us to profit from our trials. It is a “character building” opportunity, and a learning experience. Tough times can teach us perseverance.
