In James 1:2, James tells us to consider it pure joy when we face trials of many kinds. I don’t know about you, but I have a hard time maintaining joy when I am going through trials. So, why does James command us to do this?

Join me in today’s The Simple Truth 2-Minute Bible Study to uncover the original history and context of this verse. Once you dig deeper into this Scripture, you’ll understand more of what God is trying to do in your life. And believe it or not, your next trial might not be so hard to endure.
