Being a Father continues to teach me about patience. It is an ongoing lesson. I can remember thinking, “When will he start walking? When will he talk? When will she say my name? When will he learn some manners? When will he learn to be polite?” As we together develop and grow in our love for God and our love for one another, let’s be patient! A child does not learn manners instantly. Crawling usually comes before walking, and walking comes before running. It’s not that different to our spiritual growth as we come into a closer relationship with the Lord Jesus.
