Who do u think u r? – Patience
We live in a culture that is obsessed with productivity and speed! This puts a great deal of pressure on us and encourages us to cultivate impatience rather than the Fruit of the Spirit – patience.
So the question today is “How do we cultivate patience in a culture obsessed with productivity and speed?”
Here’s a working definition from Timothy Keller:
Patience: an ability to face trouble without blowing up or hitting out. Its opposite is resentment toward God and others and its counterfeits are cynicism or lack of care.
Our look at “patience” begins in 2 Peter 3:8-9
