See something you want? Buy it with your credit card. Are you hungry? Simply nuke your meal in the microwave or go to one of the fast food places in your area of town. Missed a show on TV? Watch it online.
Did you know that we used to have to actually get up and turn a nob on the television to switch to a different channel? There were no remote controls.
And there was something called layaway? If you wanted to buy something but you didn't have the full amount, you paid if off slowly but you only got to take the item home ...after it was paid in full. Imagine that?
Consider the following questions:
Do you get discouraged and give up after eating and exercising for one week just because ...you only lost one pound?
Have you tried to read a book but get distracted by all the other things you have to do?
Have you prayed for something and not yet received an answer?
We don't always get to see instant results. After all, some things take time and ...patience on our part.
So, how patient are you?
- Are you willing to wait for something?
- Or have you grown so accustomed to having things right now in your timing and in your own way?
- Do you have any examples that you might share?
- Have you learned anything from having to wait for something?
