INTRODUCTION. No one likes trials and temptations. We would rather live happy and peaceful lives without a care in the world. Yet, if we did that, we would miss one of the greatest opportunities for spiritual growth and blessing. This week’s lesson introduces us to the truth that there is a purpose in the trials we face. That purpose is to make us strong in our faith. But it is not easy for anyone to go through long periods of trials and temptations. In the text this week, James teaches us that good can come out of such difficult times for the faithful believer.
