“Love is patient, love is…”
When Paul was writing to the Corinthians about love I believe he listed “patient” first for a reason.
Being patient is difficult! We want what we want now. We want people to do what we want when we want them to do it. At its core, patience is the opposite of selfishness. Selfishness doesn’t wait. Selfishness demands it’s own way right away. Patience doesn’t give up.
Since becoming a father, I have learned a whole new level of patience. I have to tell my boys things over and over and over and over and over again. The same is true for us. How many times have we turned against our Heavenly Father? Over and over and over again. Yet, our God is slow to anger. He is quick to listen. He is patient.
Truth is, the more we become like God, the more patient we become. Pray and worship over these songs through your week. Seek God. Seek Him and patience that only comes from knowing Him.
