We have all heard the pitiful phrase, "I need patience; and I want it now!" It is not easy to be understanding, kind, and patient with those that annoy us. Where is our patience when we are stuck in slow moving traffic or when at the rear of the line in the bank? We were already running behind and late for an appointment!
Self control and the character strength of patience are difficult to maintain in our busy lives. If we can be honest with ourselves we'll confess patience is not one of our usual inner strengths. "He who is slow to anger (has patience) has great understanding, but he who is quick tempered (is impatient) exalts folly (Proverbs 14:29 NAS)."
Patience, please! God is still teaching me lessons on patience; and I must pay attention in class!
