People Need our Patience

People Need our Patience

‘Be patient, most people are doing the best they can.’ What would happen if we lived by that motto? What if we decided that people are all struggling with unseen challenges and need our patience? They are, you know. They need all the kindness and tenderness we can give. What if we offered patience freely, as a gift? Scripture tells us, “Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him” (Psalm 37:7). I believe the recipients of our patience would be greatly appreciative. Try it. Give it to someone, freely as a gift to them and yourself!
