Overcoming adversity

By Dave Henning / April 13, 2012

Author Bob Merritt (When Life’s Not Working) emphasizes that a life marked by what the Bible describes as the fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22) is possible, even for those experiencing adversity, with these words of encouragement: “You can overcome if you have a family that loves you, a small group of friends who pray for you, and a God who promises to never leave or forsake you.  You will be able to find the strength and resources to overcome any problem if loving God and others is the top priority of your life.”

As a correlary, the author states that you can measure your love for God by the depth of your compassion and love for others.
