Fruit of the Spirit: Patience

Galatians 5:22-23

This week’s Focus comes from Genesis 15:1-6 and 17:15-22


Patience is waiting for the right time without complaining.  Often the right time is God’s time.

Abram trusted God and for a while believed God would give him a son.  Well, after about 10 years had passed Abram and Sarai decided to try to make God’s promise happen on their own and had a son their own way.


25 years after God promised a son, God fulfilled his promise.

Unfortunately Abram and Sarai were not patient and had consequences for trying to do things in their own time.
