As technology continues to progress, it seems that we have less patience. When we say, "I wonder if...," we can usually find an almost instantaneous answer. We can look up information in the palm of our hand using only our voice! While this access to information allows us to "know" things, we sometimes lose sight of the value of patience!
Even though we can find many answers in a short period of time, it takes more to understand and apply our knowledge. Patience allows us to use what we have learned, but it also allows us to interact with each other. Without being patient with each other, we end up with frustration and conflict. Instead of taking on a "warrior" attitude, we can strive for patience and self-control. With God's help, we can learn to use these qualities to live in peace with His love!
Learn patience and self-control to help you live in peace through God's love!
Thank You for being patient with me. Help me to learn patience and to always strive for peace through Your love. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
