Fruits of the Spirit: PATIENCE

Topic: Curriculum


Rev. Craig Stevenson, UMC Deacon and Lobbyist with Kids Win Missouri

Craig points us to a story in Mark and reminds us that if the disciples couldn’t be patient, then we know it’s only through the Holy Spirit that we can live into this fruit. Patience is a practice. We can exercise this muscle and lean into this discipline by meditating and being quietly in prayer. In our fast-paced world, we can put down our phones and make ourselves wait a little. Through times of hurt and disappointment, we can practice patience knowing that God has a plan. Click here to download related discussion questions.
