Don’t resent life’s “hot water.” It PURIFIES.


Hebrews 12:11: Now no chastening seems to be joyful for the present, but painful; nevertheless, afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.


Discuss / describe one time when a painful situation made you a better person. Thank God for the lessons that He taught you through it.


Dear Lord, I trust that You know how to purify my heart. Thank You for doing what is right and being faithful to encourage me in the end. In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.
