Developing Patience


Developing Patience          Bible Text:  3:12–17 Colossians

On any given day, we may come across annoying people or situations, such as a mischievous youngster, an obstinate coworker, or a lengthy commute. We may want to lash out, but God wants us to be calm and patient with everyone (1 Thess. 5:14). The Bible says a lot about how believers might cultivate this crucial trait.

First and foremost, it is our calling. God commands us to be tolerant, kind, and to bear one another’s burdens (Eph. 4:1-3). Second, the Lord has set an example for us by showing patience in the face of Peter’s conduct, the demands of the multitude, and the false accusations of the leaders. We should strive for such poise.

Third, we must recognize the dangers of impatience. It has the potential to cause harm to others and to stifle dialogue. Responding calmly allows people the opportunity to own mistakes, explain their attitude, and make improvements.

Patience is one of the spiritual fruits that grows as we are molded to Christ’s image (Gal. 5:22-23). When we rely on the Holy Spirit, He gives us the ability to walk through times of waiting and provocation without becoming upset. In times of delay or struggle, a serene temperament can be a significant testament to God’s transforming work.
