Bible Text: James 5:7-11 |


When you've been mistreated, James says , be patient, wait in calm, show self restraint instead of getting even. Be patient because the Lord's return is near (James 5:8). While we wait we can develop the "quieter virtues" of submission, humility, patience, joyful endurance, and persistence in well-doing. Your struggle and suffering is not meaningless, every millisecond is shaping you (2 Corinthians 4:17). Wait persistently for your compassionate and merciful God to act. His coming is near. Endure until He comes.
