Final:

Patience seems like an easy concept to grab, but it really isn’t. Patience is a hard thing to acquire, especially to perfect it. Not everyone can have patience for long, or even have any to begin with. One thing we can learn from Jesus is just that, that patience is a virtue.

Everyone is stressed about something, no argue there, but because there is so much stress, we also develop impatience and impatient tendencies. Becoming impatient develops anger and ends up lashing onto others, when we didn’t need to. Parents explode on their kids because they get impatient when they do not listen to them; customers yelling at the servers because it feels like the food is taking a long time; or even waiting for the elevator to come because you’re already 5 minutes late for work.  We tend to also lose patience when we pray to God, asking for things and not receiving it. Because of this, people tend to lose their faith, just because they were impatient. Because of how little we seem to have patience, everyone explodes on to each other and fight a ridiculous amount.

Jesus was and is always patient. No matter how long it took, Jesus always understood the waiting process and stuck by. He was also patient towards his disciples and other people. Since he was so patient, calm, and understanding, it rubbed off of others as well. One example in modern day is when people fast for their religion. They are patient and hold their hunger in and the end result is rewarding.

We should learn to develop patience, just like Jesus. By developing patience, we can also be one with ourselves and not get mad at ourselves or others. Also, just by being patient, you’re mind won’t falter to pessimistic thoughts, like if it takes time for God to answer your prayers. Everything takes time, you just have to wait and be optimistic.

Peer Review:

Remember to do a conclusion. Give examples. I like everything else. I agree how people’s faith waves when their prayer isnt answered right away.

First Draft:

Patience is hard. Not everyone has it or its just really hard to keep it for very long. A lot of times we just wait for about 5 minutes and explode on others because it makes us feel better. However, that is just wrong. We should learn to have patience, like Jesus.
