Patience (olive green) at play is energizing and not exhausting!

practical points on Patience:)

We are surrounded by a world in which people are often lovers of themselves, not open to any agreement, and without self-control. Those who display such characteristics are frequently anything but patient. […]

In the Biblical sense of the word, patience is more than simply putting up with a trying situation. A person with godly patience endures with a purpose. He sees beyond his own needs and considers the welfare of the one causing a disagreeable situation. For this reason, when a patient person is wronged or provoked, he refuses to give up hope for improvement in the disturbed relationship. Little wonder, then, that the Bible lists being “patient” as the first of many fine qualities that stem from love. (1 Cor. 13:4)

from my (albeit limited/imperfect) point of view: the more patience shown…indicative of depth of love; love indicative of understanding/appreciation; the more we love someone the more willing we are to be patient with/in our dealings/interactions/communications.

Patience is a wise course in numerous situations/circumstances (on & off line).

For example, please, notice these further excerpted readings:

Many everyday situations may test our patience. For example, if you feel that you have something important to say, you may need to exercise patience in order to avoid interrupting others. (Jas. 1:19) You might also need to show patience when associating with […] whose habits irritate you. Instead of overreacting to such things, you are wise to consider how [Yahweh]/ Jehovah and Jesus react to our weaknesses. They do not focus a critical eye on our minor failings. Rather, they see our good qualities and patiently observe our efforts to improve.​—1 Tim. 1:16; 1 Pet. 3:12.

Another situation that may test our patience is when someone suggests that we said or did something wrong. All too often, we may be quick to take offense and justify ourselves. However, God’s Word recommends a different response. It states: “Better to be patient than to be haughty in spirit. Do not be quick to take offense, for the taking of offense lodges in the bosom of fools.” (Eccl. 7:8, 9) Hence, even if an accusation is completely untrue, we should patiently weigh our response. Jesus followed that principle when others unjustly ridiculed him.​—Matt. 11:19.

Humans’ laws…do they get to the root of a problem? Can they rid us of hate? Can they stop murder?

IDK, couple weeks back?…was meaning to write on this topic, but i have a lot swirling in my brain and in my life…Yeah, i do have a life…(outside of this post/writing time)…major and minor responsibilities every day of which to tend…conscientiously. Plus, (too) long (for this post) story short, not always able to access computer for writing lately…my favorite device died-UGH!!:( …and haven’t made time nor opportunity to figure out/nor fix/resurrect my surface. i hate (aka strongly dislike) technology fails..especially when i am in an about to crash-wave of ultra-busyness and no-time-to-stop-or-i-may-drown…No, i am not putting my full confidence in technology! NOPE.;)

Enough explaining…(and complaining;)…back to topic under consideration/discussion: an oldie excerpt for reading: (my blue highlights)

God’s Word also counsels us not to cherish resentment, not to carry “internalized hatreds” around with us. It tells us that to ‘hate our brother is to be a murderer and that no murderer will gain eternal life.’ “You must not hate your brother in your heart.” “Let not the sun set with you in a provoked state.” (1 John 3:15; Lev. 19:17; Eph. 4:26NW) Hostility or personal hatred is actually a form of rebellion. It represents a desire to punish another, to work injury. It is unwilling to wait upon Jehovah to make an accounting but wants to take the law into its own hands. Note how this is brought to our attention in Moses’ law, which, by the way, also shows us what the remedy is: “You must not take vengeance nor have a grudge against the sons of your people; and you must love your fellow as yourself.” Rather than returning kind for kind we are instructed, “Continue to love your enemies, to do good to those hating you, to bless those cursing you.”—Lev. 19:18;Luke 6:27, 28NW. [Scriptural Aspect of Psychosomatic Medicine W 1954, 4/15 p. 236]

When we refuse to forgive a friend or enemy…it’s damaging to ourselves. Jesus and Moses get to the root of murder…a hateful/vengeful attitude/grudge/disposition toward someone…(not talking toward the something aka hurtful/bad/wrong behavior of said someone)…some who take the law into their own hands…act worse than the so-called perpetrator.  And IF we maintain/harbor a hate toward the someone say in our life…we may just cut off communication and association with said person…in effect…making them dead to us.

No communicating/associating with…the dead, eh?!

And honestly communicating before resentment and hatred take over a relationship…keep it a live…living…working on peace.

Work is life.

The scriptures have been a true friend to me…offering wise words…keeping me healthy…on a multi-wellness path. (God, i am such a geek!! an outsider to some)

this post is not how i planned it…(i’m tired, etc., etc., etc.)…You know what???

stop reading my post(s)…and start reading the Bible…(it’s written MUCH better and MORE worth Your time).

peace
