Patience is something we probably don’t think much about until it’s lost – until WE “lose” our patience – or until others “lose” theirs. Otherwise, we probably don’t go around admiring or thinking about this quality all that much. But as we will see with this lesson, it is a quality that each and every one of us must be so very grateful for and something that we must desire to grow in. Why? Because being patient is being like Christ. Extending patience to others is simply giving out what we have first received.
