So patience is the lesson, one story or lesson that we need, especially in this season. Not to hurry in our cookie preparation just to get it over and done with. Not to hurry in slapping on the icing and not to rush in getting those confections off to the post office. Instead, we are to be intentional in our purpose.
James 5: 7 - 10
7 Be patient, therefore, brethren, until the coming of the Lord. Behold, the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient over it until it receives the early and the late rain. 8 You also be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is at hand. 9 Do not grumble, brethren, against one another, that you may not be judged; behold, the Judge is standing at the doors. 10 As an example of suffering and patience, brethren, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord.
