Patience, my friend

“Like regulated blood pressure is an indicator of good health, patience with strangers, our spouse, and our children is a telltale sign of how well the other fruit of the Spirit are developing in our lives. If our patience is lacking, we can be sure the other fruit are underdeveloped.”— Vine Ripened Life

<idle musing>
A woman once asked Watchman Nee to pray for patience for her. He refused, saying rather that he would pray that she would have Jesus in her. He told her that patience is simply more of Jesus...more of Jesus, more patience. Less patience, the less we are allowing Jesus (through the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit) to control us.
