Patience. . . Is It So Hard?

James 5:7-8 “7 Be patient, then, brothers and sisters, until the Lord’s coming. See how the farmer waits for the land to yield its valuable crop, patiently waiting for the autumn and spring rains. 8 You too, be patient and stand firm, because the Lord’s coming is near.”

We live in a world where people have no patience. Everybody wants what they want now, they don’t want to wait for it. But in the Bible patience is a virtue that God loves. God wants His people to be patient, because patience builds a good character. We need to be patient, whether its waiting for the food in the microwave to be done or waiting for God to answer our prayers. Everything has a right time and place and you need only wait for the right time and be in the right place to receive.
