A Prayer to Be Patient with One Another By Jessica Van Roekel
“Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.” - 1 Corinthians 13:4-7
Raising kids is not for the faint of heart. It requires courage, commitment, and a strong dose of patience. I recall a wise, older woman encouraging me through advice and insight. I knew her grown daughters and was so impressed by who they were, so I eagerly leaned into what she had to say. Her advice impacted how I parented. She said we, as people, have natural bents that lean toward uncivilized behavior, and we need to learn how to live civilly with others.
