Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord.
7 Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord. Consider the farmer who waits patiently for the coming of rain in the fall and spring, looking forward to the precious fruit of the earth. 8 You also must wait patiently, strengthening your resolve, because the coming of the Lord is near. 9 Don’t complain about each other, brothers and sisters, so that you won’t be judged. Look! The judge is standing at the door!
10 Brothers and sisters, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord as an example of patient resolve and steadfastness.
Mankind always waits until they have nothing else they can do to give time to their surroundings. The life of man has and seems to always be the fault of someone else. From the beginning, he has not given consideration to anything but himself until the fall-and this is where God comes in. He had dominion and could not see that he had the powerand rule over every little creature, even over the serpent. Not until he is crossed over by his own mistakes will he identify that God is in charge. God has given us rule, and we blame everyone else for not accomplishing the task given to us by Him. If it's not the wife, it's the children, the job, the lack of money, or the lack of opportunity-just to name a few things. When are we going to admit it? We are the problem. We serve a merciful God, and He cares for us more than we can describe or imagine.
