“Daddy, I Don’t Want The Onions”

“Daddy, I don’t want the onions. I want everything else, but I don’t want the onions.”

“Son, if there are no onions in this pineapple rice, it would not be as fragrant you are tasting it now”

Consider it a sheer gift, friends, when tests and challenges come at you from all sides. You know that under pressure, your faith-life is forced into the open and shows its true colors. 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. — James 1:2–4 (MSG)
