This is one of my favorite verses. It represents one of the three commitments I have made to myself and others.
1) I will embrace responsibility.
2) I will reject passivity.
3) I will believe in God for the greater reward.
James 1:12 Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him. (Graphic design from the faithlife.com team.)
