Fruit of the Spirit - Week 5 - Patience

Bible Story/Verse

Proverbs 14:29 says, “Anyone who is patient has great understanding. But anyone who gets angry quickly shows how foolish he is.”

Romans 8:25 But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently.

Psalm 40:1 I waited patiently for the LORD; he turned to me and heard my cry.

Isaiah 40:31
But those who wait on the LORD shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint.

The story of Job - I know this is along story, mostly dialogue, but it is the best story of patience and the blessings that can come out of it. I plan on reading what happened to Job from the Bible, summarizing all the dialogue and then reading the blessings that come from Job waiting patiently and not speaking out against God.

Crafts
Job crafts are hard to find! So here are some sites with activity sheets and coloring pages

A whole site dedicated to the character building of children and it includes a whole page on patience! http://www.characterjournal.com/html/patience.htm
