Love is patient … 1 Cor 13:4

Being patient is a gift of the Triune God especially gift of the Spirit! God is slow to anger, He is restrained, as leaving open the possibility of repentance and conversion. It insists on the power of mercy and compassion. Patience is tied to humility, love and the gift of freedom. To love is to good. Patience means unconditional love not manipulation and control. Patience means to love and serve as Christ. Patience does not entail being used, abused, manipulated stepped on, or mistreated. Patience involves kind acceptance of diversity, imperfection and uniqueness!

Patience allows the wheat and weeds to go together!

Lord, help me to be patient and slow to anger and rich in mercy!

Let us pray for one another.
