In James 1:9-11, God’s Word tells us that those who are poor and those who are rich need to develop a counter-intuitive perspective on how they view their financial status. Why? Because of regardless of how little or how much money we have, it is a test that can enable us to develop endurance and spiritual growth.
But, in James 1:12, we realize that there is something else that financial trials do for us. They help us to determine if our faith is genuine. They help us to discover whether we are on our way to Heaven or Hell.
