Patience is defined as the capacity to accept or tolerate delay, trouble or suffering without getting angry or upset. The definition hints at the fact that it isn’t just about waiting; it’s how you act while you wait. How do you act when traffic comes to a stop and you’re in danger of being late to your destination? Or what about when a customer ahead of you in the “10 items or less” grocery line has more than 20 items? Or when a website takes several minutes to load? Patience is important enough to be enumerated as one of the fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23). What can you do to improve yours?
