Notes on Patience – Mastery Over Self

Patience is something that is tested in my life every day, as I am sure it is for most of us. I thought that perhaps it would be a good idea for me to begin a study that was a bit more in depth so that I could know how to gain a self-mastery that I do not have right now. I hope that my readers will enjoy following this series of posts on patience and that it may help someone else out there, as much as it has helped me. To see more posts, check out Notes on Patience

He that is slow to wrath is of great understanding: but he that is hasty of spirit exalteth folly. (Proverbs 14:29)

A wrathful man stirreth up strife: but he that is slow to anger appeaseth strife. (Proverbs 15:18)

Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil. (Psalms 37:8)

  • If I can have self-control, and show patience rather than getting worked up, I will be better suited to stop the contention in my home. Otherwise, I will look back on my actions and regret them. I have recognized easily those times when someone else in my family is angry and how quickly it negatively affects others around them, including myself. This mastery over self, needs to be something that I start now. The scriptures say to cease and forsake things like anger and wrath. That doesn’t mean that I can procrastinate in it, or even give myself an allowance of these things today. It means that I need to try my best to completely abandon these natural impulses.

    About My Scripture Study Buddy

    I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I love the scriptures, but I am not a scriptorian. I've been told that I'm too "deep" for some, but if you are willing, I'd love to have others join me in my quest for a greater understanding of the gospel. Please feel free to leave me comments and hopefully we can help each other to learn.
