Fruits of the Spirit
Patience - Reaching for Higher Ground!
"A mans wisdom makes him patient.
He will be honored if he forgives someone
who sins against him."
When you play a game you do not understand or you are not big enough to play, it can make you upset with yourself and others. It is important to know the rules and purpose of the game. You need to watch and make sure it is fair and everyone knows how to play. Are you patient when someone else is unhappy? God wants you to choose not to get angry or upset with yourself and others when things are not going your way. You should also watch out for the feelings of others.
We are not all the same. God has given everyone talents. Our talents could be different from even our very best friends. Jesus knew we would need to have patience with ourselves and each other. The Fruit of the Spirit called 'patience' is a gift we learn to use with practice. We can choose not to get upset because God gave us this wonderful gift of Holy Spirit.
