This Meditation is based on James 5:7-10
Be patient, therefore, beloved, until the coming of the Lord. The farmer waits for the precious crop from the earth, being patient with it until it receives the early and the late rains. 8You also must be patient. Strengthen your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is near. 9Beloved, do not grumble against one another, so that you may not be judged. See, the Judge is standing at the doors! 10As an example of suffering and patience, beloved, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord.
As we continue to wait for our Redeemer, we learn to adjust our expectations for Christ’s return. We must be patient. St. James directs our attention to the patience of the plants which need time to grow before they can be harvested.
