Practicing Patience in the Meantime

March 13, 2022 | Perry Kallis

Passage: James 5:7-12

Recently I was in the waiting room of a dental office awaiting my turn for a routine cleaning. I noticed that none of us “waiters” were reading magazines, but rather were on our cell phones. (Interesting that we are called ‘patients’ when none of us are practicing ‘patience’). Those devices have become the most popular, modern “meantime” activity while we wait. You can even see drivers at red lights, madly accessing their cell phones, waiting for the light to change. James 5:7 is part of a passage that reminds believers how to wait as we anticipate the coming of our Lord – a timely message for our modern times when the coming of the Lord is truly near.
