Notes on Patience – Uplifting Others in Love and Peace

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

So that we ourselves glory in you in the churches of God for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that ye endure: (2 Thessalonians 1:4)

Behold, I have refined thee, but not with silver; I have chosen thee in the furnace of affliction. (Isaiah 48:10; see also 1 Nephi 20:10)

2 With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love;
3 Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. (Ephesians 4:2-3)

  • God will judge righteously. Patience through trials and tribulations makes me worthy of the kingdom of God. The church, and society in general, benefit when I am more patient with others. I can give the best of myself, when I am able to focus on uplifting others and improving myself, rather then focusing on the faults and flaws of others. I will work harder to provide more to others, when I have greater hope in getting through my trials, rather than bringing those around me down. Patience with others, with myself, and with God will show in how I live and will help me to love and do good works, and help to keep others unified in the gospel.

    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.
