Why does God test His children?

God had one Son without sin, but He never had sons without trials. It is not known what quality grapes yield until they come to the wine press. When we are squeezed what comes out indicates what's on the inside! When you came to "Marah" this week, what came out? Grumbling like Israel or crying out like Moses?

Pr17:3 The refining pot is for silver & the furnace for gold but Jehovah tests hearts (Mt Henry)
Ps 66:10-note For You have tried us, O God; You have refined us as silver is refined.Spurgeon) (cf Isa 48:10 Spurgeon) (Job 23:10)
