God’s Abundance: Patience (#925)
Today we’ll continue our series on God’s Abundance, with looking at the the concept of Patience.  God has great patience with us, and as a result we need to have great patience, being imitators of God: we need to patient with ourselves, with other people, and mostly on waiting on the Lord and expecting Him to take care of us, and in not getting impatient about that.  Patience is a great topic, I had a friend the other day that said: “One doctor said another one, thank you for your patience” … I wasn’t there so I’m not sure the guy laughed of not.  But in any rate, lets start in Psalms 37…
