Don’t Lose Patience


From Pastor’s Desk:

Proverbs 19:11 A person’s wisdom yields patience; it is to one’s glory to overlook an offense.
***
If one can categorize them, patience is toward the top of the list of most important fruit of the Spirit (Gal. 5:22-23) . If patience is a highly significant fruit of the Spirit, impatience, then, is a highly significant work of the flesh (Gal. 5:19-21). It can wreak havoc in a person’s life and all those with whom that person is involved. Impatience lends to the detriment of an individual in whom it is manifest.

James 1:5 tells us if we lack wisdom to ask of God and He will give it. James says that God will “upbraideth” or defame, that is rail at, chide, taunt. The Greek word is oneidezō (on-i-did’-zo).

Sometimes we chronologically challenged folks are prone to lose what patience we may have at one time had. It would behoove us to get it back! Yes, I am including myself.
