Romans 5:3-4 We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. 4 And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation.
2 Corinthians 1:3-7 (page 883) All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is our merciful Father and the source of all comfort.
