This is a series I’d like to do and I’m calling it “Love in Depth; According to the Bible” its about a 17 part series, I hope you like it and learn something new! This is a little bit of what i think this means and also what the bible says it means. I’m trying my best, please let me know it the comments if i miss anything or get something wrong. Here it is!
Like i said in my older post (What Is Love) The Bible says love is “Love is patient and kind; it is not jealous or conceited or proud; love is not ill-mannered or selfish or irritable; love does not keep a record of wrongs; love is not happy with evil, but is happy with the truth. Love never gives up; and its faith, hope, and patience never fail. Love is eternal. ” – 1 Corinthians 13:4-8a.
So lets go into what Patient means. Well to be patient means to wait, to not be anxious, to not not pushy. Well what does the bible say about God being patient? well one of the verses i found is “The Lord is not slow to do what he has promised, as some think. Instead, he is patient with you, because he does not want anyone to be destroyed, but wants all to turn away from their sins.” – 2 Peter 3:9
Some more verses are “Let your hope keep you joyful, be patient in your troubles, and pray at all times.” – Romans 12:12 “Be patient, then, my friends, until the Lord comes. See how patient farmers are as they wait for their land to produce precious crops. They wait patiently for the autumn and spring rains.” – James 5:7
So see the bible tells us to be patient. Ill be posting the next post in this series in Wednesday about being kind. Thanks For listening please share with your friends and give me feedback!
