  • The apostle James tells us in James 1:2 that we should “count it all joy” when we go through a trial. But, how can we do that?
    The key word is count. This was a financial term used by bookkeepers and means “to evaluate.” Christians are told to “count” our trials as occasions for joy. We can only do this when we know what God is doing in our trials.
    The 19th-century pastor, F. B. Meyer explained the valuable product of our trials in a way that, although dated, gets the point across:

  • Do you want a fool-proof, guilt-free way to get rid of your enemies? Well, God has given a way in scripture for you to do just that.

    Paul, in Romans 12:20, quotes Proverbs 25:22, which says, “if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink; for by so doing you will heap burning coals on his head” (ESV).

    Although numerous interpretations of this passage have been made over the years, I believe that this passage is simply stating that acts of kindness done to your enemy shame him and bring him to a place of repentance.
