  • Growing in Christ often comes down to things we take off and put on, like when we say to a child, "Hold on. Be patient," what we're saying is "Put on some patience." The Bible talks about patience as delaying something you want on behalf of someone else's need. Like the way God is patient with us, slow to judge, and long-suffering. You put on patience when you let a child finish a task using their style, not yours. It's showing mercy and restraint to keep on loving someone who is hard to love.

Patience is definitely a virtue.

Ron: Patience is definitely a virtue.

Announcer: For FamilyLife Blended®, here’s Ron Deal.

Ron: Growing in Christ often comes down to things we take off and things we put on, like when we say to a child, “Hold on. Just be patient,” what we’re saying is “Put on some patience.” The Bible often talks about patience as delaying something you want on behalf of someone else’s need. Like the way God is merciful and patient with us, slow to judge, and long-suffering.

You put on patience when you let a child finish a task using their style, not yours. It’s being long-suffering to not give up on a family member who has given up on you. And it’s showing mercy and restraint to keep on loving someone in your home who isn’t very loveable. Let’s put on patience. For FamilyLife Blended I’m Ron Deal.
