Farming Patience (Rev. Bethany Peerbolte)
“Patience like a farmer recognizes that we aren’t the only force working on whatever it is we are currently tending to.”
How would you describe your relationship with patience?
Be patient, therefore, brothers and sisters, until the coming of the Lord. The farmer waits for the precious crop from the earth, being patient with it until it receives the early and the late rains. You also must be patient. Strengthen your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is near. Brothers and sisters, do not grumble against one another, so that you may not be judged. See, the Judge is standing at the doors! As an example of suffering and patience, brothers and sisters, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord.
