A Good Student?

Written by Dallas Pepper on June 24th, 2017.

One day while moping I was thinking about how God uses trials and waiting to teach us.
"I must be an awful student to need so much", I thought.
As soon as I thought that God responded.
"Or maybe it is because you are a really good one."
Sometimes the reason for a lack testing isn't because someone has graduated and doesn't need to learn anything else. Sometimes it is because they aren't teachable. Therefor sometimes testing isn't because someone is "bad". It is because God knows they are willing to be even better.

Verses:

Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me - Psalm 51:10(NIV)

2 Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. 4 Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. - James 1:2-4(NIV)
