Read James 1:1-18
Reflect: How does James view trials? Is he dismissive or realistic? Why? How does our response correspond to our relationship with God?
Respond: What trial are you going through? What was your initial response? How does knowing there is purpose and source of wisdom to navigate it help you?
Prayer: Father, you know my honest feelings about my trials. And I know with your help I can use it to my benefit. Help me see how. Help me to respond with faith and wisdom. Amen.
