This is a really nice time of year here in Canada. I want to talk about the testing of our faith. It is when the pressure is on that a person’s true character is revealed. It is easy to be happy and kind when things are going well. But what we do when things are not going so well reveal our true character. Pressure brings the true heart of a person to the surface . It is what we do in these times that really matter. James 1: 2-4 says, “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.” When our faith is being tested we develop character. You might be working hard and think that no one sees you. God sees you , and He sees your heart. And in due time He will reward you. Stay faithful , stay sweet. Just hold on a little longer.
