People often recall difficult, tumultuous times with a touch of nostalgia.
What can we learn from the difficult times of life? Are our bad experiences always bad in retrospect? People who have lived through wars or America s Great Depression, or had similar difficult experiences, often remember them as good times. What can we learn from their experience and our own?

Think back to a particularly trying period in your life. Why might you recall this in a positive light today?
How, according to Yancey, does our American consumer mentality affect relationships?
How did the following people, whom Yancey names, succeed in their individual trials? Abraham: Genesis 22:1 14, Moses: Exodus 3:1 15; 4:10 18, 27 31; Hebrews 11:24 27, David: I Samuel 24:1 13, Elijah: I Kings 19:1 20, Job: Job 2:7 10
Sample application questions:
Why is endurance in the face of great difficulty so hard? Why do some people give up relatively quickly?
What factors contribute to our unwillingness to endure difficulty for long?
