Love is patient. 1 Corinthians 13:4

I donít like to wait. I donít like to wait in line. I donít like to wait because someone is thoughtlessly blocking the whole aisle with his cart. I donít like people cutting in front of me in traffic or driving all the way to the very end of a lane that is running out and then trying to squeeze in front of me. I am impatient. But love is not. Scripture tells us we are to esteem others better than ourselves, to love our neighbor as ourselves. Love is patient, and if I would be patient I would be happier. If I am patient, then I donít mind the line. In fact, I could use that down time. I could pray while I am waiting. I could pray for the cashier and the other people in line. I could make someoneís day a little better by letting her go in front of me if I am patiently waiting. If I am patient, I would nicely say, ďExcuse meĒ to the person blocking the aisle instead of fuming about how inconsiderate he is being to me. (I must think the sun rises and sets on me, huh?) If I am patient, I leave room for another car to get in my lane in front of me instead of stressing myself over trying to leave less than an inch between myself and the car in front of me because ďNo one is going to get my spot in line!Ē

In fact, all of Godís instructions to us--the doís AND the dontís--are, in fact, for our good. If we would just do what He says, we would be happier and less stressed. Canít we all use a little more happiness and a little (or a lot!) less stress? Letís choose together to be a little more patient with one another, starting today. We have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
