Our small group ‘flock’ at church is going through the Fruit of the Spirit. We have been through love, joy, and peace last night. A good study, an interesting study as you look at all the different facets of these qualities and all the potential applications.
For the second or third straight week, I had to prod my wife away from socializing because we needed to leave. Needed may not accurately describe all three weeks, but it’s close enough. Poor me for having a wife who easily gets drawn into conversations with friends.
As I was trying to politely push her out the door, I was reminded for the second straight week that the fruit of patience is coming up. I don’t know that I’ve been impatient, just slightly bothered when one conversation ends and another begins. Well, at least I don’t have to teach on patience : ).
But I will have lead a lesson on kindness in two weeks.
