God is Faithful

For the last 36 years, Don Gorske of Fon Du Lac, Wisconsin, has eaten a Big Mac for lunch - every day. Over 23,000 in total. He doesn't miss a lunch. He's predictable. Where do you think he'll be today at about noon? You guessed it - at McDonald's! But Don has nothing on God. God is faithful, there is none more faithful. God is reliable - so rely on Him, He is trustworthy - so trust Him, He is dependable - so depend on Him, He is faithful - so have faith!

Longsuffering: a Fruit of the Spirit

‘Hurry up and wait.’ That ought to be my motto – but I can't bring myself to use it because it’s painfully all-too-true. Much of life is waiting and most of our frustrations come from unrealistic or improper expectations about life and others. We think longsuffering is a good quality for the driver behind us, but never for the one in front of us! We presume that others should give us a liberal amount of slack, yet we fail to deliver the same. This only leads to more frustration, impatience, and anger.
