It is not so easy to see beyond the challenges and various tests and trials we go through. It is so easy to let emotions get the better of us and cloud our judgement of the real gems contained in the various situations we face.
From the Word:
2 My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, 3 knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. 4 But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.
James 1: 2-4, NKJV
Napoleon Hill put it in this way:
“Every adversity, every failure, every heartache carries with it the seed of an equal or greater benefit.”
May we learn to have this perspective on life if we want to profit from challenges.
