Swallowing Life’s Bitter Pills by Gregory N. Barkman
Mr. Barkman encourages us to look at trials as God looks at them. When you are in school, you have tests to see how well you learned the material. On the radio you hear, “Ding, ding, ding, … this is a test, this is a test.” When a trial comes along, you ought to hear the Holy Spirit saying in your soul, “Ding, ding, ding, … this is a test …. let’s see how you’re going to do with this test.” God knows exactly what He is doing when he sends trials our way. He shows us how we can count it all joy.
Is your lifestyle marked by a keen interest in God’s commandments and a desire to obey Him? What is the greatest desire of your heart? We live today basically in the Roman Empire.
