“Whoever is patient has great understanding, but one who is quick-tempered displays folly.”
App-Isn’t it hard to be patient sometimes? You know when you are running late for work or a meeting and people are moving slow or there is traffic and you get frustrated and you start acting in your flesh. Or do you know the time when, (if you have kids) that your kids are pushing your buttons and they aren’t listening and you become easily angered and are quick to acting in your flesh. Do you realize that when you are quick-tempered, or quick to your flesh that you are now displaying folly? That you are now acting, in a sense, like a child. Isn’t it interesting how, we as humans, images of God can display such actions. What’s even more interesting, is that He continues to love us and to lift us up. What’s even more amazing is that He then died for us so that we can spend eternal life with Him in heaven which is an entirely different story to talk about. But on the other side we have, then, the option to follow what He has to speak to us about or what He asks of us. Whether we chose the eternal life or the life in hell, which living in eternal fire and working to the point of continually working even on your knees. Now, whoever is patient has great understanding. "He who waits upon the Lord will renew their strength.” Isaiah 40:31. Whoever is patient has a great understanding. You know when they said in elementary school about virtues, patience is one that I remember. Not sure why, just always has been. Patience is a powerful characteristic. Not only in the earthly world, but for the eternal kingdom.
