Text: James 1:2-4

James seems to ask something unnatural of you: to “count it all joy” when facing trials. Nevertheless, the Lord reminds us that focusing on the purpose and benefits of testing can enable you to experience a real, present foretaste of perfect joy awaiting those who persevere in faith.
