And that’s not all. We also celebrate in seasons of suffering because we know that when we suffer we develop endurance, which shapes our characters. When our characters are refined, we learn what it means to hope and anticipate God’s goodness.
Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and then all these things will be given to you too. So do not worry about tomorrow. Let tomorrow worry about itself. Living faithfully is a large enough task for today.
1 John 2:5
But whoever obeys His word, truly in this person the love of God has reached perfection. By this we may be sure that we are in Him
1 Thessalonians 5:14
And we urge you, beloved, to admonish the idlers, encourage the fainthearted, help the weak, be patient with all of them.
If you do not forgive people their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.
There is a way that seems right to man, but in the end it leads to destruction.
