Building Character

“Good timber does not grow with ease; the stronger the wind, the stronger the trees.” J. Willard Marriot

We often forget how much time it takes for a fragile sappling to become a full grown established tree, and the many storms it must go through to become so strong. Likewise, we each must go through the many storms in life to become who we were created to be. 

“But we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; and perseverance, character; and character, hope.” Romans 5:3-4

So when the wind rages and the rain beats down, stand firm like a tree knowing your character is being made stronger, and you can rest in the Son, a hope which never fades away.
