Ephesians 4:2 (TPT) With tender humility and quiet patience, always demonstrate gentleness and generous love toward one another, especially toward those who may try your patience.
Beloved, choose to be generous with patience. Resist the urge to surrender to a fleshly response when you are tried. For as you stay rooted in humility, you are fully able to choose the high road – to walk in love, even when it may not seem “deserved.”
It is no great feat to offer patience to those who appreciate it and never trample on it. But truly My glory is seen in you when you choose to love the unloveable, and extend grace, patience, and forgiveness to those who may not even be aware they have done wrong.
Love big. Let humility fill your core, and patience pour forth in love. For, beloved, you never know when your godly kindness will literally change someone’s life. Isn’t that possibility worth the cost of your pride? Know that as you walk in this kind of grace, you are storing up treasures in heaven, and reflecting My heart on earth.
