Lineage of patience

How is that we have the greatest of patience with everything else in the world except ourselves, our parents, our realtives, our bosses and then our friends in that order.

Phew - Yes God is outside(~above) this list.

What a coincidence..I was thinking about that too..

Probably the answer lies in the
Love Chapter

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.

It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.

Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.

It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Love never fails.

we think we love , but our actions
say something elseand look at the
trivality of things which anger us..or porbably we take people
nearest to us for granted..

lots of love

Yes and no... Sometimes we have greater patience with people we love. But at the same time greater expectations, perhaps. And also greater certainity that they will tolerate our impatience without it becoming an all-out war. Hence...
