A Slave to Instant

When Paul describes love, the first attribute he lists is patience”.

The faith of Christ offers no button to push for quick service.

AW Towzer

Impatience lies within us. And if you’re a product of the West, impatience is particularly prevalent. If it’s not nipped in the bud, generations will reap the cost of instant gratification.

We’ve also become an instant disappointment. As a result, we’ve become averse to suffering.

To suffer with, requires patience, to slow down. Our instant reaction is to fix: to find a Bible verse, to have the solution.

Compassion requires patience. It requires us to suffer alongside someone.
