The Story

There’s an important patience principle King Solomon wrote in Proverbs 14:29.  Anyone who is patient has great understanding.  But anyone who gets Angry quickly shows how foolish they are (NIrV).  How we respond to waiting shows others our character.  Getting frustrated and angry doesn’t make the wait any less; it just makes us look foolish.

Bottom Line: When you think you can’t wait, keep your cool. Sometimes when you’re waiting, becoming angry and frustrated with others is the first thing that pops into our minds.  But when it comes to waiting, often there’s very little we can do to make the wait any less.  While you’re waiting, don’t make yourself look foolish by taking it out on the people around you.
