When Caught Behind a Slowpoke

When told, "Wait for it," how do you respond? What's tough about waiting for dinner? For a bus? For a buyer? For Christmas? (Serendipity Bible Fourth Edition, page 1292).

Crucial impatience occurs for me in traffic, especially if I'm running late for an appointment. Initially, I complain vociferously when finding myself trapped behind a driver that seems to be creeping along. Even though nonbelievers may well consider this a copout, in such circumstances I then intentionally consider that God is in control and he knows more than I can possibly understand. Redemptive contingencies, decidedly in my favor, can undergird delays in traffic, career, or planned events.  Most people of experience can recount times when unexpected delays obtained to the benefit of all; and thus they have come, however reluctantly, to regard patience as a decided virtue firmly incorporated within the broader wisdom of God.
