Memorizing Scripture is a way to carry God’s Word with you wherever you go, keeping God-breathed instruction, reproof, and truth in your heart and mind each day.
As we study James, we will memorize the book’s key verses together, James 1:2-4. This week, we’ll begin with the first part of the passage, which teaches us the paradoxical truth of rejoicing in suffering.
Consider it a great joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you experience various trials,
because you know that the testing of your faith produces endurance.
– James 1:2-3
