Out of the hottest fire comes the strongest steel.(Chinese Proverb)

We will all face difficulty and adversity sometime in life, and we will often question its purpose. This proverb has been repeated in many ways and places, and they are helpful. However it’s said, it describes the really tough situations in life that often confront us but result in our growth. Through them we develop strength, character, and integrity, traits that help us overcome.

We patiently endure troubles and hardships and calamities of every kind. (2 Corinthians 6:4)
If we endure hardship, we will reign with him. (2 Timothy 2:12)
