2My brethren, #Acts 5:41count it all joy #1 Pet. 1:6when you fall into various trials, 3#Rom. 5:3–5knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. 4But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing. 5#1 Kin. 3:9James 3:17If any of you lacks wisdom, #Prov. 2:3–6Matt. 7:7let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and #Jer. 29:12it will be given to him. 6#(Mark 11:23Acts 10:20But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. 7For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; 8he is #James 4:8a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.
