VERSE OF THE DAY
Be blessed and be a blessing
August 16, Wednesday
Do not be quickly provoked in your spirit, for anger resides in the lap of fools
Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. 4 Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.
Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love Him.
