Waiting is a virtue for a reason!

We were about four cars back from the drive-thru menu-board when my daughter’s hungry belly led her to inform us that she didn’t like to wait. In turn we told her that the wait would be worth it. By the time we were finished eating, she had eaten more of what she ordered than she ever had before.

For those who hunger and thirst after righteousness (Matthew 5:6), waiting may not always be the easiest thing to do when we’re hungry for results. Instead of waiting with patience, many seek to fill their appetite in the ways of unrighteousness.

As a matter of fact, waiting has been a major factor for some in the departure from their faith in God (1 Samuel 13:5-14), and it continues to do so to this day (Hebrews 12:1-3).

Waiting is a virtue for a reason, and that reason will be revealed when we get that opportunity to satisfy our righteous appetite in Heaven. EA

Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city.Revelation 22:14
