Patience is a really important skill that you should learn while you're young!
Patience means you’re able to wait for something without complaining. That’s hard to do! Perhaps you have to wait until your next birthday to get a cool new game or your family has a trip planned to Disneyland but it’s still a few months away. It’s hard to wait. We want what we want right away! Well, patience is something God gives us to help us to get good at waiting. It’s one of the fruits of the Spirit that God wants to grow in our lives. Patience is important to God but he knows we need a lot of practice to get better at it. One thing we can do to grow in patience- while we wait, we can be thankful for all the great things we already have in our lives. Instead of just wishing for stuff we don’t have yet, we can be excited about the things we do have! There’s one more thing about patience. We also need to be patient when people make us mad or annoy us. When your sibling keeps bugging you, you can show patience by not yelling at them. You can be kind and remind yourself that they love you and like being around you. And, when you show patience to others, they will be patient with you! So, ask God to help you grow in patience!
