Patience involves the ability to tolerate suffering and delay without getting upset. When we are patient, we are able to calmly wait on God in the midst of suffering. Because of God’s kindness, God patiently waits for us to come to repentance, and because of God’s patience we reflect him best when we learn this virtue. We cannot cultivate patience ourselves, but must yield to God, allowing him to work in our hearts and lives.
