There are some passages in the bible that really inspire me. I call them inspiring truths. Look at this one:
“Happy are those who remain faithful under trials, because when they succeed in passing such a test, they will receive as their reward the life which God has promised to those who love him.” (James 1:12).
Not far away from that we read:
“Do not be deceived, my dear friends! Every good gift and every perfect present comes from heaven; it comes down from God, the creator of the heavenly lights, who does not change or cause darkness by turning. by his own will he brought us into being through the word of truth, so that we should have first place among all his creatures” (James 1: 16-18).
These words touch my heart. Can we depend on them? Should we depend on them? It is left to you to decide. But what ever decision you take, the fruits of that decision are what you shall reap. If not today, tomorrow. To me what the bible teaches are inspiring truths that we should live by.
