Notes on Patience – Taking Time to Choose

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

30 The decisions of these quorums, or either of them, are to be made in all righteousness, in holiness, and lowliness of heart, meekness and long suffering, and in faith, and virtue, and knowledge, temperance, patience, godliness, brotherly kindness and charity; (D&C 107:30, emphasis added)

  • All things in life, effect my spiritual well-being. Every decision, no matter how small it may seem, will effect me. Even the choice of what to eat or what to wear, will effect my mood, emotions and other choices in the day. All decisions I make should be done in righteousness and patiently. I do not need to be in such a rush to make decisions. It really is okay to stop and think about the benefits to my body and spirit which will result. This causes me to reflect on a class I had recently where we were talking about how we sometimes get into the habit of always saying no to our children even when there is not a good reason for it. This can cause them to no longer come to us to ask permission, but rather sneak around or shut themselves off from us. Being patient in my decisions with those I deal with day in and day out, should create stronger relationships and most likely get rid of some of my more selfish choices.

    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.
