This Sunday we will be looking at the virtue of patience as a follow up on the love theme from 1 Corinthians 13 that we looked at in last Sunday's sermon. Patience is part of God's nature and if we walk closely with Him, trusting Him in all circumstances, patience in our behavior is one way that will show this.
When the Bible talks about patience it usually refers to 1. a patient disposition towards other people, 2. patience in waiting for God's purposes to be fulfilled, or 3. patient endurance in difficult circumstances in life.
Think it Through

What are some of the roots of impatience? How do they manifest? What remedies can you come up with to deal with these symptoms of impatience?
