Bible Verse: And we desire each one of you to show the same earnestness to have the full assurance of hope until the end, so that you may not be sluggish, but imitators of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises. Hebrews 6:11-12
Discussion: Have you ever been impatient with someone? How did it make them feel? How did it make you feel? Did the situation get better or worse? Patience is a fruit of the Spirit; which is mentioned in Corinthians. It should not be taken lightly, and we must practice patience with others. It is easy to become impatient. When you are ready to snap at someone, repeat Hebrews 6:11-12 over and over to yourself. You just may find that patience actually will help the situation. In a "Me-First" world, it is easy to throw in the towel. May you be reminded of God's Love every day, and how He was patient with you!

Prayer: Dear gracious Father, thank you for having patience with us; and Lord help us have patience with others around us. Patience is a fruit of the Spirit; and it should not be taken lightly. Amen.
