Behold, we count them happy which endure. You have heard of the patience of Job, and have seen the end of the Lord…
Suppose a man takes a great contract to build some large edifice in three or five years, and you go in three or five months, and criticise his work, and find fault with this and that. Would it not be unjust? Would he not say, "Please to wait until the work is completed before you pass your judgment upon it: then I will hear what you have to say about it." God has a time in which to complete His work; and you are not to judge before the time. "He that believeth shall not make haste." And when you see the end, you will be brought not only to submit to it but to approve it, and to see it is right.
(S. H. Langston, M. A.)
