Virtue Of Patience

“Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace.” 1 Peter 1:13

There are different trials that we face in our daily lives as we encounter different kinds of frustrations, disappointments, contradictions, privations, sickness, and all sorts of hardships. All these things cause pain both physically and psychologically. However, patience is defined as our efforts to handle them courageously without losing our serenity, or without being so irritated or despondent. To be patient therefore means to endure discomfort without complaint. Patience involves such things as self-control, humility, and generosity, all of which are themselves virtues. So, one might say that patience is a virtue because it’s an exercise of several other virtues. Dearly beloved, as believers, we should have the courage to endure much more if these hard times can be seen in the perspective of the cross of Christ. We must be intentional about increasing our patience by focusing ever more clearly on the example of Christ to imitate Him in all things, large and small.

O Lord give me patience in times of tribulations. In Jesus name I pray, Amen
