Be Patient With All Of Them

… encourage the faint hearted, help the weak, be patient with all of them. — 1 Thessalonians 5:14.

Written 2000 years ago, the above words sound as if it is advice on how to deal with the virus. Probably, the most important being, “be patient.” I can’t tell you how many times my conversations lately have turned to the need to be patient. Certainly the words apply to parents about dealing with their children. Who knows what the long term effects will be on them that virtual learning, isolation, and pure fear has and will cause. I’ve heard children say, “I don’t want to be the reason why ( grandfather, mother, friend, etc) dies.” We need to be patient with their fears and anxieties.

We also need to be patient with ourselves and our loved ones. We really don’t know what the future will bring to each and every one of us. We are all to some degree anxious and afraid. In the words above. “Be patient with all of them” and us!
