SC Daily Meditations

“Being justified therefore by faith, let us have peace with God, through our Lord Jesus Christ:
By whom also we have access through faith into this grace wherein we stand: and glory in the hope of the glory of the sons of God.
And not only so: but we glory also in tribulation, knowing that tribulation worketh patience;
And patience trial; and trial hope;
And hope confoundeth not: because the charity of God is poured forth in our hearts, by the Holy Ghost who is given to us.“
Rom 5.1-5

Enjoy Tribulation!

 

In most cases, we see our problems as an unnecessary difficulty and burden. And generally, this is what they are. Nevertheless, God sees them as an opportunity. An opportunity to strengthen and build our character.

We should resemble God himself in our character. This means, that we have to use any possible situation, to work with it. The change of our character does not come easily or painlessly. It takes our decision, followed by action.

Patience,  trial (experience) hope and charity (love) are very important elements of our character. Instead of complaining to God, we should use this opportunity to improve ourselves and become more like him!
