The Bible has some things to say about patience, and no one says more about it than the apostle Paul, perhaps because he had to develop patience himself. Paul certainly shows the quality is as important as many other aspects of God’s nature. It’s not just a biblical principle, of course. Doubtless a patient type himself, Shakespeare wrote “How poor are they that have not patience!” Though Mark Twain wrote on behalf of those of us who are not so blessed, “All good things arrive unto them that wait – and don't die in the meantime.”
But patience really is an important quality of the Christian calling, and so in the article I share a simple personal experience that may be helpful to some who, like me, need patience - quickly.
