“Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up.” I Corinthians 13:4 Life can be frustrating, even exasperating. Yet, many times impatience is just a reflection of our own self-centeredness in response to life’s disappointments. Real love is pictured in the Bible as self-sacrifice. It sets aside our personal agenda and seeks to model Christ. Sound impossible? It is, if we attempt it in our own strength. But as we pray for help, God provides us with patience that reflects His love, even during frustrating circumstances. When tempted to lose patience with others, remember God’s patience with you.
