A gem cannot be polished without friction nor a man perfected without trials. —-Chinese proverb
We all bemoan the trials that we go through. We wish that life could be easy with no bumps in the road. However, it is the trials that help to make us, not only beautiful, but useful in God’s eyes. It is the trials that help us to understand the pain of others. Learn from the trials so that you can be used by God to help others.
Miraculous God, you don’t cause our trials to happen but you want us to use them to bring about your kingdom. AMEN
