I was just thinking about this yesterday. (One of my former KGK kids and I have a study every Wednesday and Friday and had just hit the topic of trials.) 1 Peter puts it this way:
"... trials. These have come so that your faith - of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire - may be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed."Yes,what doesn't kill us only makes us godlier, if we let it.
But will we let it?
