Patience is one I personally struggle with! Kindness has always been very easy for me... most time people take advantage of it hence why my patience is probably thin🤦🏾♀️😂
This one is really simple! I could just say:
How The Most High has not only been patient to us, HE has been kind throughout ALL generations. Showing grace and mercy day after day... EVEN as undeserving as we are, This is why we must desire to mimic this kindness in our dealings with HIS people regardless. I know, I don’t like her... so Tuh... However.. let’s peel back a layer and avoid the temptation to be petty in our dealings with other people. We must overlook minor faults in love, and we will ONLY be able to do this when we are KIND, recognizing that as HE is patient with us, we should reciprocate EVEN if they don’t deserve it.. NOW being patient and kind does not mean you have to be in the presence of this person... but deal with them from distance by being kind means not talking about them, not wishing them ill will, IF they need your help, sucking it up and being kind thru patience. I look at it this way, if they take one step, you take two: patience and kindness.
The end? It doesn’t have to be... keep stepping I all the fruits of the spirit 💕
