Word to the Wise | “Patience”

Have you ever become impatient over a life situation you believe you should have mastered by now?  It is very frustrating.  How do we learn to be patient?  There are two basic ways.

The first way is to go through a lot of trials ourselves until we learn the lessons that produce patience.  Or, second, we can learn patience by observing other people going through their trials.

Suggestion: Learn patience with other people’s mistakes.  It is less costly.

Three thoughts come to mind.  (1) Learn to “cast all your cares upon the Lord and He will carry them for you.”  (2) Practice “trusting in the Lord in all your ways and He will guide you to your destination.”  (3) Practice “waiting on Him and he will never disappoint you.”

Even an intolerable situation becomes a welcomed learning event when we depend on His love and grace.
