Adversity is the test of faith; prosperity is the test of integrity. (Tom Roy, Sports mentor)
Prosperity is a goal many people are working for, but adversity often gets in the way. A slump in the market or deteriorating sales will likely make a business leader upset and worried. Roy’s quote is helpful to consider when we understand that in adversity we gain wisdom more readily than in times of prosperity. It’s that wisdom that just might help us become prosperous.
For [God] gets their attention through adversity (Job 36:15). Trusting the Lord leads to prosperity (Proverbs 28:25).
