Be glad about it!!!!
Sometimes the people that are closest to you will not support you but don't give up on your family members! The book is not finished!! James's focus was not on his position or title. Titles should be an indicator of ability. Too much emphasis on titles. Your title does not make you! Your works will not save you but if you're saved you should work! Your works will determine your heavenly rewards!
Be glad when you fall into divers (different) temptations! Temptation is not always bad. At times, it is necessary for advancement or growth. Test are designed to develop trust. Tests reveal what you are made of. Anything that cannot be tested cannot be trusted. So be glad when you fall into situations that will test you in order to prove where you are, to make you grow. Be glad God allows you to go through something b/c without going through something you will not have a testimony. God wants to know if you will trust Him. It's the proving ground. What the enemy has meant for evil, God will use for good!
The trying of your faith worketh patience. It means to wait, to expect. Patience is the ability to be wronged and not retaliate (for people). It's the ability to endure without complaining (for situations). No test, no testimony. The reason why you are able to go is b/c of what you're going through!
