Why is this a gift and how can it make our lives more in line with Gods? That is that by being patient we are acting and behaving just like God does towards us and the rest of humanity. Yes from the beginning of time until the very end of it. You see we will not need patience once we are living in our salvation and everything it represents. So but now I must first define it as there are a lot of words in the definition of which if I had the time I might do as I have done in the past which is to define everyone one of them. But, yes but in this case I should ask that you D-Com the definition of patience and any and all of the words that you do not completely understand so that you have a thorough understanding of what this gift means:

noun

  1. the quality of being patient, as the bearing of provocation, annoyance, misfortune, or pain, without complaint, loss of temper, irritation, or the like.
  2. an ability or willingness to suppress restlessness or annoyance when confronted with delay:

adjective

  1. bearing provocation, annoyance, misfortune, delay, hardship, pain, etc., with fortitude and calm and without complaint, anger, or the like.

 This is like the fullness of the Gospel short of love, although that may not be true because you will need to conquer you in every way, all of your wild and immature behavior that will rise up to defend itself when trouble shows up. Look, we haven’t even got to the 25 bible examples of how patience was used or how it is offered to us as a commandment that we ought to be patient.
