Patience (3)

Often we have a problem being patient with our family members. When we are with our family, we show who we truly are.
Think about your family. Are you patient when your elderly parents repeat stories over and over again? Are you patient with your spouse when they disagree with you? And what about your in-laws? Are you as patient with them as you are with your own parents?
We all have family members that are hard to get along with. Some judge us unfairly or criticize us. And some disagree with us about politics, religion and many other things.
In our Bible Reading today, we learn that Jesus had problems with His earthly family, too. Some of His family members did not believe and follow Him. But Jesus was always patient with them. The Bible tells us that later these family members did believe that Jesus was truly God’s Son.
Love your family today and be patient with them!
