"My brethren, consider it a great joy when trials of many kinds come upon you; for you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance"
Life has daily trials that test our faith. God invites us to live them with great joy. Joy is not a naive happiness but is contentment in Christ above all else. It is to be rooted in Christ, not depending on our own efforts or strength.
