You were one once, if not more

Be patient with those immature teenagers … you were one once.

Be patient with that stubborn spouse … you were one once.

Be patient with the unlearned Bible student … you were one once.

Be patient with that oblivious driver … you were one once.

Be patient with that annoying coworker … you were one once.

Be patient with the unrepentant sinner … you were one once.

The need for patience is great even if the task is difficult because the odds are, whatever you’re dealing with when it comes to others, you were one once, if not a whole lot more, and others needed it with us!

“But that servant went out and found one of his fellow servants who owed him a hundred denarii; and he laid hands on him and took him by the throat, saying, ‘Pay me what you owe!’ So his fellow servant fell down at his feet and begged him, saying, ‘Have patience with me, and I will pay you all.’ And he would not, but went and threw him into prison till he should pay the debt.” (Matthew 18:28-30 NKJV)
