1 Corinthians 13:4 - Love is patient...
Gladys and Rhonda walked along the sidewalk after church. They were on their way home, thinking about meals planned for later that afternoon and casually discussing the morning service.
"That was a great sermon on patience," remarked Rhonda.
Gladys replied, "Yeah, but he went five minutes long."
What do you think of when you think of patience? For me, I think of a snail called Herbert.
It's easier to have patience with others when we remember God's patience toward us.
2 Peter 3:9 says The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance. (NASB)
Dear Lord, Thank you
- For your patience with me
- For the patience of others with me
