Hallmark

Until this morning the only thing I knew about hallmark was the name of a card sold in Hallmark stores.  I looked it up.  It means: a mark stamped on gold, silver, or platinum in Britain, certifying their standard of purity.  A stamp of authenticity.

James 1:4 says, “But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.”  Trials bring out that essential character quality of endurance.

Our trials supply what is lacking in our lives.  A note in my Bible says that endurance is the hallmark of a mature believer.

Our trials purify our faith, like gold is purified in fire.  Endurance is the stamp of an authentic follower of Christ.
