LOVE IS PATIENT
1 Corinthians 13:4
People say patience is a virtue. I agree with this. Having patience is a good part of someone’s character. Not everyone has patience. Some people get angry and frustrated quickly. They can’t wait. If you have no patience, you want everything to happen right now.
Did you know that the greek word for patient means taking a long time to boil? If you turn up the flame on your burner, water will boil faster. If you turn down the flame water will burn slower. Patience keeps the flame low.
It waits and it listens. Before you boil over, listen up. Do you have the patience to wait till your mud settles and the water is clear? ... Then pause, wait patiently, listen again.
We become more patient as we get older. Perhaps we learn how to be more patient. In today’s world, you really need patience because we expect everything to happen straight away and often it doesn’t.
Life demands patience . . . and lots of it!
So on this SUPER Saturday be patient with others and be patient with yourself too.
Patience is a virtue.
