Patience (Ecclesiastes 7:8)

Good morning all,

The word of the day is “patience.” Not really my favrit virtue in the world. In fact, when I was younger one of my mentors told me that it was important for me to have patience, but never to pray for it. Why… ‘cause you might just be put in a situation to have to test it. Instead, I prayed for understanding in all situations and learned to be patient as I was given those hard times in life. Solomon knew a thing or two about patience…

"The end of a matter is better than its beginning, and patience is better than pride."
~Ecc. 7:8

Think about it. Of all the peeps ever to live you would figure that Solomon dealt with the pride issue a ton. Try being the wisest dude ever to live – either before or ever since. Craziness, I know. My question for you today is: How are you when it comes to patience… is it something you are good at or do you need some work? God wants us to rely on his power and love for us, in all situations. My prayer for you today is that you learn to wait on God in all parts of your life.

Praying for you,
