Patience is a Virtue
Thursday, October 11, 2012
We need a good dose of patience in this hectic world. James writes: " Be patient, therefore, brethren, until the coming of The Lord. Behold the farmer waits for the precious produce of the soil, being patient about it, until it gets the early and late rains. You too be patient; strengthen your hearts, for the coming of The Lord is at hand." James 5:7-8 Instead of demanding the immediate return on our labour s we need to have an eternal perspective.
"Do not complain," said James. Instead of griping at one another we need to encourage one another " The judge is standing at the door," (vs9) The wait for eternity can be full of trials but James writes" The Lord is full of compassion and merciful." God always rewards those who patiently endure. (Vs10-11)
So have patience God will bless you richly.
