James 1: 4 (KJV):

But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.


It is needed in all areas of our lives.  It is something, in my opinion, that most people need to work at.  You might think your patient, but how fast do you drive down the road?

Gardening, among other things, is a wonderful lesson in patience.  How do I know?  Checking the garden upwards of five times a day only to get frustrated that the beans haven’t sprouted kind of supports that theory.

You cultivate the earth, so patience must also be cultivated.  I think that by making one simple change in the way you think will make patience eventually become a way of life. 

Stop looking at the now.  Look beyond what you see in front of you and look at the end result.

When you are driving down the road, you begin to speed because right now you feel like you aren’t getting anywhere.  But, stop thinking of that – realize you will get to your end destination.  If, over the course of time you get into the habit of looking toward the end goal, you might actually find you have more patience.
