Monday's Devotional

Good Morning Everyone,

Let's look at Romans 5:3–4

"We also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; and perseverance, character; and character, hope."

An old violin maker was much envied by fellow artisans because of the superior quality of the instruments he produced. He finally disclosed the secret of his success. He said that while the others went into the protected valleys to cut wood to make their violins, he climbed the rugged crags of a nearby mountain in order to secure trees which had become severely twisted and gnarled by storms. From these weatherbeaten monarchs of the forest he then fabricated his violins—famous for their tone and beauty.

He knew that the fierce trials of the mountain gales caused such trees to strengthen and toughen their fibers. It was this—their storm-tortured heart and grain—that produced the deep, colorful sound when the instrument was played. Likewise, the Lord allows sore difficulties to come into our lives that we may more fully bring forth the music of His grace when our soul-trying experiences have done their sanctifying work.

Bro. Paul
