Book of James, Chapter 1

Rejoice in trials, persecutions, afflictions, sufferings, of one kind or another, endurance of which proves our faith and helps build us into the kind of person that Christ came to make of us.


Peter calls trials, precious:  1 Peter 1:7 

These trials will show that your faith is genuine. It is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold—though your faith is far more precious than mere gold. So when your faith remains strong through many trials, it will bring you much praise and glory and honor on the day when Jesus Christ is revealed to the whole world.
