Daily Reading, Oct. 26, 2009

It's the "If we only suffer with him..." line at the end that is the tough one. The one not too many pause to reflect on too much. We're all in such a hurry to banish our suffering, popping the pills for a quick fix, quoting the... right scripture, for a quick fix. Everything's gotta be done so fast for us, doesn't it? We can't wait for much if anything anymore. That presents a big problem when you're following Jesus, because he's NEVER in a hurry. Lord, help me to be patient, is a prayer that you'd better mean, because right after you pray it, your patience will, not "flourish" in all manner of loveliness, causing others to be amazed at how patient you are, but it will be TRIED. And it will COST you something.
