SPIRIT WEEK Part 2: Patience

It’s SPIRIT WEEK Part 2 here on GUWG, where we’re continuing our look at each fruit of the Spirit.

Today’s featured fruit: PATIENCE.

Patience is one fruit that’s often missing from my basket. Here’s what most of my prayers on this topic sound like:

“Hurry up God and give me patience … NOW!”

Just in case you’re even a little bit like me, here are my all-time favorite anti-impatience verses. Ask the Holy Spirit to help you sloooooow down and read ’em patiently.

  • “I waited patiently for the Lord; he turned to me and heard my cry.” (Psalm 40:1)
  • “Whoever is patient has great understanding, but one who is quick-tempered displays folly.” (Proverbs 14:29)
  • “Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.” (Romans 12:12)
  • “Love is patient . . .” (1 Corinthians 13:4)
  • “Be patient, bearing with one another in love.” (Ephesians 4:2)
  • “[B]e patient and stand firm, because the Lord’s coming is near.” (James 5:8)
