Adversity Is Life’s University
By David Chadwick

Dad taught me that life is not easy. He said to expect ups and downs, trials and tribulations. He wanted me to remember that Jesus said that rain falls on the just and the unjust alike (Matthew 5:45).

Dad knew that tough times are a part of life. And he wanted me to embrace them when they came to me. They can be used by God to teach valuable life lessons about perseverance and not giving up.

That’s why Dad would regularly say to me, “Son, adversity is life’s university.”

The Bible teaches for Christians to rejoice in tribulations. Why? When you persevere through trials, you forge eternal character qualities that cannot be learned any other way. Then comes hope. Finally, God’s love is poured out in us through the Holy Spirit (Romans 5:3-5).

Adversity is life’s university.

It is one of the most valuable lessons my dad ever taught me.

Live in-tune with the heartbeat of God!
