So that you may not be sluggish, but imitators of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises – Hebrews 6:12.
Yesterday, I could of used an extra dose of patience. I am finding being couped up is definitely getting to me. It hard to be motivated when we can’t actually go do anything without taking precautions.
From the verse above, if we are more like Jesus, then God reassures that we will receive His promises. By following Jesus, we strengthen our own faith and it can be accomplished by showing patience towards others.
For example, one way to train a pup to have patience is through repetitive practice using two simple words “Leave-it”. We learn patience and discipline through the repetitive practice with our pup. So technically, we can apply the same discipline to ourselves by leaving worldly things behind. We move forward in our faith with the ultimate prize of being with Jesus.
I pray that we can be slow to speak and to be more understanding when dealing with others. May our faith in Jesus increase, and the worldly actions within us decrease. May this devotion motivate you to be more patient like Jesus.
