Patience Godlike
James 1:2-4
My brothers, count it all joy when you fall into divers temptations;…

It would be far easier, I apprehend, for nine men out of ten to join a storming party than to lie on a rack or to hang on a cross without repining. Yes, patience is a strength; and patience is not merely a strength, it is wisdom in exercising it. We, the creatures of a day, make one of the nearest approaches that is posssible for us to the life of God. Of God, St. has finely said, "Patiens quia aeternus Because He lives for ever, He can afford to wait."

(Canon Liddon.)
