Navigating Trials│James 1:12-18

Series: James

August 16, 2020
Pastor Joshua Lim

While everyone goes through trials in life, not everyone grows through those trials. Here in our passage, James shows how we can better navigate our trials so that they don't morph into destructive temptations. If we want to come out the other side better rather than bitter, we need to guard our hearts and we need to guide our eyes.
