Through All the Changing Scenes of Life
James jumps between topics. There is the topic of trials sandwiched between verses 2 and 12. On our journey we meet trials. There are times when life seems to be going well and times when it is difficult. At all times we should ask what God is teaching us. Sometimes the medicine is not pleasant but it produces patience or steadfastness. All of life makes us stronger and after it comes the crown.
