Not only so, but we rejoice in our sufferings…” (Romans 5:2-3); “in all our troubles my joy knows no bounds.” (2 Cor. 7:4). “Filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy…” (2 Peter 1:8); “In the midst of a very severe trial, their overflowing joy and their extreme poverty welled up in rich generosity.” (2 Cor. 8:2); “Has not God chosen those who are poor in the eyes of the world to be rich in faith and to inherit the kingdom he promised those who love him?” (James 2:5)
