Those who are best at waiting are best at serving, also. (James Gribble, pioneer missionary)

Today could likely be labeled as the age of “impatience.” We want what we want, and we want it NOW! In spite of modern technology that speeds things up immeasurably, many critical issues of life take time. A seed doesn’t produce fruit overnight, and a creative idea rarely develops into a complete reality instantly. If it’s worth doing, it’s worth working and waiting for.

Consider the farmers who patiently wait for the rains in the fall and in the spring. They eagerly look for the valuable harvest to ripen (James 5:7).
