Growing in wisdom. James challenged his readers and us to call out to God for wisdom right after telling them to rejoice in tribulation for the endurance it produces in the believer’s life. No coincidence. James had seen in the life of Jesus that the fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom. And wisdom is to trust God even when the challenges of our life don’t make sense. And Christ sustains us when we seek to trust Him above trusting our reasoning.
Luke 2:52 and James 1:2-8
