Romans 5:3-5

November 6, 2009

If you follow me online at all, you’ve seen me insert this Bible reference in certain places.  You may be familiar with it yourself.  It is my favorite passage that I’ve found in the Bible so far because it is all encompassing for me and my faith.  For this particular time in my life… it is spot on:

…we also exult in our tribulations, knowing that tribulation brings about perseverance; and perseverance, proven character; and proven character, hope; and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us.

Go ahead and let your guard down now.  This is not an attempt to push faith or religion on you.  In fact, I’m quite the opposite when it comes to trying to influence another person’s beliefs.  To each their own.  I’m just letting you know that this passage means something special to me.

Regardless of your beliefs; perseverance, character, and hope are three key ingredients to all of it.
