For me, Patience and kindness have never come naturally!
Normally the saying of Americans is..”I don’t have no patience!” Or “Your testing my patience!”
It certainly doesn’t come easy for a lot of humans. To be helpful in the presence of someone who is being mean, to take initiative with someone who never does anything kind first.. To be gentle even when we want to say something not so nice.. I think we have a lot of growing to do even as christians. It’s about learning that life is about more than just me, and more than just you.. when this becomes more important than getting our own needs met i think personally we will come a lot further as a nation!
