1 Corinthians 13:4-5 (ESV)

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;

To own Christ’s peace we must overcome our hurried impatience.

  • To overcome hurried impatience we have to understand it.
  • To overcome impatience we must look to Jesus.
  • To overcome impatience we have to prioritize others.
  • To overcome our impatience we need to discipline ourselves to slow down.
  • To overcome out impatience we may have to kill something.
