The Christian perspective

“. . . we also exult in our tribulations, knowing that tribulations brings about perseverance; and perseverance, proven character; and proven character, hope . . .” (Romans 5:3-4).

“Consider it all joy . . . when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing” (James 1:2-4).

The key to joy is knowing that.
