James 1:1-4

ESV 1 James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, To the twelve tribes in the Dispersion: Greetings. MSG 1 I, James, am a slave of God and the Master Jesus, writing to the twelve tribes scattered to Kingdom Come: Hello! ESV 2 Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, MSG 2 Consider it a sheer gift, friends, when tests and challenges come at you from all sides. ESV 3 for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. MSG 3 You know that under pressure, your faith-life is forced into the open and shows its true colors. ESV 4 And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. MSG 4 So don't try to get out of anything prematurely. Let it do its work so you become mature and well-developed, not deficient in any way.
