Endeavor to be Patient

Thankful for the gift of fresh range-free eggs.

This morning I read these thoughts.
How they spoke to my sometimes over critical heart.

And what doth the Lord require of thee,
but to do justly,
and to love mercy,
and to walk humbly with thy God?
–Micah 6:8.

Endeavor to be patient in bearing with the defects and infirmities of others,
of what sort soever they be;
for that thyself also hast many failings which must be borne with by others.
If thou canst not make thyself such an one as thou wouldest,
how canst thou expect to have another in all things to thy liking?
THOMAS À KEMPIS

Put on therefore… kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, long-suffering.
–Colossians 3:12
