Hang in There

You will be rewarded when the
time is right, if you don’t give up.
                  —Galatians 6:9

Yale professor Halford Luccock called patience the “ho-hum” virtue.

Theologian John Chrysostom, on the other hand, called it “the queen of virtues.”

More often than not, failure can be chalked up to lack of patience rather than lack of ability.

Ditching a long-term project in two weeks is the game of losers.

Wherever you find success—physical, occupational, educational, relational, or spiritual—you will find patience.

Patience is a fruit of the Spirit (Gal 5:22), and like any fruit, it ripens slowly. Impatience doesn’t accelerate the ripening process by a single hour.

Without patience, ability bears no fruit.
