Today is Gerald Ford’s birthday, so I’m sharing a coloring page in his honor.
This free printable features one of my favorite Ford quotes: “History and experience tell us that moral progress comes not in comfortable and complacent times, but out of trial and confusion.”
Do you know what else (in addition to history and experience) tells us that trials produce progress? The Bible! Compare Ford’s words to the ones we read in James 1:2-4:
“Consider it all joy, my brothers and sisters, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.”
