I READ: 1 Corinthians 13, Ruth 1:15-17

The definition of patient is the ability to withstand trials, not easily angered, does not lose hope easily, and does not easily get broken hearted. Ruth is an example of someone who has love followed by patience.  Because of her love for her for her mother in law, Ruth followed her and  with patience bore the burden as a widow. Ruth never complained even when she had to work hard to find food in a foreign land.  Ruth’s patience and love moved God to change her situation. And from Ruth’s descendants, was born the Messiah, who is Jesus Christ.  True love will give patience in dealing with others and in bad situations. Love that is accompanied by patience will enable someone to walk this life calmly and believe that there’s a way out in every problem.

I DECLARE: Proverbs 15:18 – A wrathful man stirs up strife, but he who is slow to anger allays contention.

I DO: What action am I going to take after meditating on the Word of God?

I PRAY: Pray as guided by the Holy Spirit.
