So what is causing you to be impatient today? Traffic? Long lines at the grocery store? People that talk too much? A crying baby or a strong-willed child? Do things like misplaced keys, stuck zippers, popped buttons, cold food, spilled milk, interruptions in your day or feeling rushed make you impatient? The things that cause us to be impatient are so mundane in comparison with what the readers of James were going through. But, they are important to our heavenly Father who has numbered the very hairs on our head and cares when a sparrow falls.
