That “patient” is the first thing love is.
This month, the gradeschoolers are learning about Patience. Which we define as: trusting God for what to provide and when to provide it.
Being patient, having patience, doesn’t mean enableing or passively allowing the sins of others. It doesn’t mean sweeping things under the rug. It doesn’t mean holding your tongue but letting your mind run.
It means TRUSTING God for WHAT to provide, and WHEN to provide it.
