Patience (chapter 5)

James said that they should be patient like a farmer.  The coming of the Lord was soon.  The farmer waits for his precious crop to grow from the earth with the early and the late rains.  They had to be patient like that.  They were not to grumble against each other.  Then they will not be judged.  The judge was standing at the door.  They should consider the patience and suffering of the blessed Israelite prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord.  They should remember their endurance and patience.  They knew the purpose of the Lord.  They knew that he was compassionate and merciful.  Are you a patient person?
