Too many people shut their eyes to the problems facing them, and sure enough, the problems get bigger. Troubles are like a boomerang; you can't throw them away because they come right back at you. Troubles can quickly multiply.

Meeting troubles head on is not always easy to do, but there are a number of benefits that come to us from taking the challenge when we act with wisdom. The Bible tells us to count it all joy when we have trials, or troubles, because they teach us faith and patience and result in us growing into levels of maturity that make our life better and also add to the betterment of all we know (James 1:2 James 1:2My brothers, count it all joy when you fall into divers temptations;
American King James Version×
). We do not need to seek troubles—we have plenty to go around. We need to tackle them one at a time with gusto and determination. That makes life exciting, and we are the better for it.
