I just had my first Zoom meeting for my sales job. One of the guys talked about the course we have to take and what purpose it serves. He said we only have to know 10 percent of the course, but the test serves as a way to weed out those who are motivated and those who are not.
God does the same thing to us. God puts through tests and trials that may seem pointless, but it’s worthwhile in the end. Testing builds character, and when we can keep a positive attitude while being tested, we are showing God that we aren’t just Sunday Christians but 24/7 Christians.
“For whom the Lord loves He chastens,
And scourges every son whom He receives.”
– Hewbrews 12:6 [NLT]
