11: Getting Ready For the Harvest – Lesson Plan — 1 Comment

  1. In reference to #3, the text (James 5:10) uses the prophets as an example of patience. For them it wasn't a matter of misfortune such as a bad financial decision or a common health problem like we all sometimes have to deal with. Their problem was one of giving a very unpopular message, one that often angered their listeners. It is not easy to go against the tide, to paddle upstream against the current and when you are punished for telling the truth then that is when patience comes in. As Peter said, "For what credit is it if, when you are beaten for your faults, you take it patiently? But when you do good and suffer, if you take it patiently, this is commendable before God" (1 Pet. 2:20 NKJV).

    We also quite often like to call hardships persecution when it really isn't. Quite often the problems we have are our own doing because we failed to listen to sound advice or the lack of self control got in the way.
