Purpose of Trials

James: Purpose of Trials
Excerpt… Recently, I saw that someone found one of my websites by searching on Google for the phrase, “Why does God give us trials?” First, let me say that I do not believe God causes the trials that come into our lives. Some are the result of our own actions, others result from the actions of those around us and some hardships occur to everyone in a particular location (like hurricanes). Since I believe that God is omnipotent (all powerful), I must conclude that He ALLOWS these things gto happen to us. But He does so because hardships become “object lessons.” The result of our trial should be that we learn and grow.
