Patience

A few years ago, if you wanted to tell something to your friend who lived far away, you had to write a letter. Then you had to put the letter in an envelope and mail it. Your friend would receive your letter four or five days later and write back to you. So, after ten or twelve days, you would get a response from your friend.
The world is different today. We can send an e-mail or text our friend and receive an immediate response. Or, we can call our deaf friend on a videophone and see them signing to us.
But God wants us to be patient in our communication with Him. When we are patient, we focus on God instead of focusing on ourselves and our troubles. It is hard to be patient because we want everything NOW. But God knows what is best for us. He will work out everything in His time.
Be patient with God and with other people, too.
