Advantage of Adversity
James 1:2-4
My brothers, count it all joy when you fall into divers temptations;…

Tough trees grow in exposed situations, where the mightiest winds of heaven sweep and whirl from year to year. An experienced shipbuilder would not think of using for the mainmast of a ship a tree that had grown in a hot-house, where the whirlwind had never come.

(R. V. Lawrence.)
