1 Corinthians 13:4 ‘’Love is patient,’’ ……
Webster’s dictionary says 1. Bearing pain or trials calmly or without complaining 2. Manifesting forbearance under provocation or strain 3. Not hasty or impetuous 4. Steadfast despite opposition, difficulty, or adversity 5. Able or willing to bear…..
Boy, that is a lot to deal with as humans. Because humans, as a whole, don’t have patience in today’s society. We stop at a stop light and someone ahead of us is on the phone and doesn’t move when the light changes so we honk the horn or hit the wheel, or curse them. When our children don’t mind us and do as we say do we hollar at them or even punish them too quickly, Maybe they couldn’t tie their shoes fast enough. When we go to the drive thru and it takes longer than we thought it should, do we get angry and talk bad about the person in the window and cooking being too slow, or do we say we could have gone in faster. We live in a world that is hustle and bustle. Hurry up and get it done. Learning to be patient in this world today can only be done by the power of Jesus. ON THE WAY HOME WALK WITH JESUS and learn the patience of love.
