Patience and Passion

Seek patience and passion in equal amounts.  Patience alone will not build the temple.  Passion alone will destroy its walls.    ~ Maya Angelou ~

“When the Bible speaks of patience…it speaks of it as a virtue that goes far beyond the mere ability to await some future gain. It involves more than the rest or peace of the soul that trusts in God’s perfect timing. The patience that is in view here focuses more on interpersonal relationships with other people. It is the patience of long suffering and of forbearing in the midst of personal injury. This is the most difficult patience of all” (Tabletalk, p. 6, vol. 28, no. 9, Ligonier Ministries).
