A Great Day–Or Is It?

You can plan, schedule, and control—but real life doesn’t always go as smoothly as you’d like, does it? Someone’s upset with you, the car breaks down, you’re in a meeting and the school calls because your child is sick, you get the news your mother has fallen and hurt herself—it’s an endless list.

Galatians 5:22-23 says, “The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.” As a believer in Christ, you have longsuffering, or patience, as a fruit of the Spirit. Let this verse be a great comfort and reminder when you’re dealing with personal relationships, trying to keep a household together, and managing your workday, along with all the other responsibilities you have. Colossians 3:12 says to “clothe yourselves with… patience.” It’s spiritual fashion at its best!

Jesus, I want to wear my faith well. Grant me patience as I parent my children, encourage my spouse, do my work, and offer a listening ear and open heart to others. Amen.
