Love is patient
To accept or tolerate delay,
trouble or suffering without
When I look back over my life, I see the difference between having patience and not having faith in my day-to-day life. One thing that comes to mind is the missing out on so many blessings around me. For instance- I could be in line at a grocery store and if I were impatient, I would miss an opportunity to make someone smile if they were having a bad day. Or miss out on making a difference in a small, but meaningful way to someone in need. On the other hand, if I stayed patient in a hurried world, I could show a little of the love of Jesus, in just a moment of my unhurried time.
This all sounds good, but in reality, it wasn’t so. I had a lot to learn...
