Growth. It is inevitable. It’s essentially a process. A process we cannot bypass or avoid to get to the next stage. It is a principle of life. It is illegal to bypass it. Even our very own Savior, Jesus grew in wisdom and stature.
Through all forms of media we see what seems to be quick successes. Young millionaires. Miracles signs and wonders, out of no where.
May we not despise process. Our own and others’. Being patient IN love. The process of growth. Growth of our businesses. Growth of the spirit. Growth of our skills. Growth in understanding.
A lack of patience opens us up to envy, jealousy, bitterness… May we be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.
