Patience is accepting the imperfections of others. By nature, we so want others to be as good as we are; as on time as we are; as organized as we are. The reality – humans are not machines. The rest of the world does not live by your priority list. Your agenda is not their agenda. Patience is giving people freedom to be different. When is the last time you were impatient? Did your impatience not come from someone failing to live up to your expectations? The bible says, “love is patient”. Love apologizes when in impatience I lash out at you. What if all Christians were patient? My book, Love As a Way of Life is designed to help you get there.
