Lengthening Patience Shortens Troubles

Lengthening Patience Shortens Troubles

Numbers 21:4–6; Proverbs 14:29; 19:11; Isaiah 8:17; Galatians 5:22

To lengthen my patience is the best way to shorten my troubles; and to lessen my patience is the speediest way to lengthen my pain.

George Swinnock (1627 -1673)
