Practicing Patience

Patience is hard work. Just consider your own driving practices—how it’s hard to wait for the slow person with their turn signal on to finally make that right turn, how we speed around cars in the slow lane, and how when we’re in our own cars we often give vent to rage, frustration, and indignation that others aren’t driving better. Patience doesn’t come naturally. We’re wired to only consider ourselves and our own desires. We live in a time when steady and slow spiritual growth is something for which we must practice patience.
