Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, (I want it MY way), which war against the soul; Having your conversation honest among the Gentiles: that, whereas they speak against you as evildoers, they may by your good works, (Patience), which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visitation. Submit yourselves to every ordinance, (every dumb law), of man for the Lord's sake: whether it be to the king, as supreme; Or unto governors, (even the ungodly ones), as unto them that are sent by Him for the punishment of evildoers, and for the praise of them that do well, (as unto the Lord). For so is the will of God, that with Well Doing ye may put to silence THE IGNORANCE OF FOOLISH MEN: 1 Peter 2:11-15. OK Family, it's time for some self-examination. How are you doing in The Patience department? The old days are gone and the new days are here, full of political foolishness and political correctness. It's getting harder and harder to be Patient just to fill out redundant paperwork, like at the Doctor's Office, or some government application. PEOPLE, IT'S DESIGNED THIS WAY, and the Design is from the Lord Himself, and it's for us, His People. I'll explain. EVERYTHING that you want to do that requires some paperwork, some needless, silly, paperwork, IS DESIGNED BY THE LORD JUST FOR YOU TO GROW IN PATIENCE, AND TO GO THROUGH THE WHOLE DAY, ALL DAY, WITH A SMILE ON YOUR FACE AND REAL JOY IN YOUR HEART!!! The world doesn't care, it's full of anger already, and more "stupidity" on top of existing "stupidity" isn't going to change anything. But YOU, Christian, in your effort to walk in CHRISTLIKENESS, will also Walk in Patience WITH ALL THINGS, AT ALL TIMES, AS UNTO THE LORD, FOR THE WORLD TO SEE CHRIST IN YOU. If you lose your patience today over some silly thing, what's going to happen tomorrow when you HAVE TO be Patient, or it may cost you your life? Read your Bible, it isn't going to get easier, to Walk Uprightly, and to, Be Blessed.
