Learning How To Endure

 God blesses those who patiently endure testing and temptation.  Afterward they will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.  And remember, when you are being tempted, do not say, "God is tempting me."  God is NEVER tempted to do wrong, and he never tempts anyone else. 

Temptation comes from our own desires, which entice us and drag us away.  

These desires give birth to sinful actions.  And when sin is allowed to grow it gives birth to death. 

(Here comes the eternal hope)

So don't be misled, my dear brothers and sisters.  Whatever is good and perfect comes down to us from God our Father, who created all the lights in the heavens.  HE NEVER CHANGES OR CASTS SHIFTING SHADOWS!  (Praise the Lord!)  
James 1:12-17
