Be Patient

We all face problems and difficult times. Sometimes it is hard to be patient during these situations.
Recently I faced several situations where my patience was tested. I am sorry to say that I was not always patient. But I was able to look back on my times of impatience and learn important lessons.
The verses in our Bible Reading show me that as my relationship with God grows, my patience will grow, too. “…these troubles make us more patient. And this patience is proof that we are strong. And this proof gives us hope” (verses 3b-4).
When we are patient, we show God’s love to other people. We also grow closer to Him and become stronger. This kind of strength can only come from God.
You may face problems today. Depend on God to help you be loving and patient.
