“Those speak foolishly who ascribe their anger or their impatience to such as offend them or to tribulation. Tribulation does not make people impatient, but proves that they are impatient. So everyone may learn from tribulation how his heart is constituted.” – Martin Luther
Patience is not situationally determined. You are either patient or impatient, regardless of who your are with or what is going on round about. Patience is a state of heart, not a state of affairs.
Some circumstances may be more constrictive or less opportune than others, but every circumstance contains in it the seeds of greater fulfillment.
