We become the master of our appetites and aversions when we face and pass crucial tests of character. And the most crucial tests come with temptation, adversity, and power. These tests come early on and often throughout life. We build strength of character by facing and passing life’s little tests in our early years. This prepares us to face the bigger tests later on.
We face many tests of character during our lifetime. And each test provides an opportunity to be better and stronger. During times of trial, our faith can be greatly instrumental in helping us become the person we want to be.
