Makrothumia (Greek), pronounced mak-roth-oo-meh'-ah, meaning: forbearance, long-enduring, fortitude, long-suffering, and patience.

When does a person develop patience? At the point of the new birth? How long does it take to cultivate this fruit to maturity? What does it take to make the process happen? The special application of this quality of character is most often exhibited in our dealing with other people - relationships. Perhaps it's easier to approach this from the negative side. Lack of patience can poison relationships and too often ruins what would otherwise be wonderful and maybe even brilliant personalities. But this fruit takes time to mature.

But the fruit of the spirit is Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self-Control... - Galations 5:22–23

In these Bible studies from best-selling author Robert Strand, you will learn about yourself and how to relate to others as you gain a deeper understanding of what it means to be in Christ.

Great Book
Review by Andrea
I have always tried to teach my children about Patience and why it is important. I am excited to use this with my son and myself. It provides so much on patience.
Who couldn’t use a little more patience?
Review by Jessica
In a world that lacks patience this will be a great study to get into with my girls. The questions are deep but easy to understand for a kid. Which is a pattern I’m seeing in this series of books anyways. These books aren’t intimidating but they are still interesting and very thought provoking not only for your kids but you as well. I really am looking forward to doing all 9 of these books with my girls for our morning basket! Thank you Master Books!!
Love this one!!
Review by Nancy
We are all human and patience can only be done with getting the word of God in our hearts. The lessons are nicely interwoven and we can practically apply to our lives.
Love this

Excellent resource for families and individuals
Review by Sarah
This is an excellent Bible study on patience. I appreciated how everything went back to scripture. This is useful for both families and individuals hoping to learn more about Biblical patience.
Needed this one the most!
Review by Natalie
This book explores waiting patiently on the Lord, which is something many of us struggle with. The author uses stories from the Bible to demonstrate the rewards of waiting patiently and the lessons we learn in the process.
Very helpful
Review by Heidi
This being an area I struggle with, I appreciate this one the most. Very helpful to me.
Patience is more than not losing your temper
Review by Karie
Wow! There are alot of areas touched on in this book. I often thought of patience applying to interpersonal relationships and suffering. From this book, I've see patience in forgiveness, our speech, spiritual growth and the Lord's return/our expectant hope, as well as in our relationships and personal trials. I'm looking forward to sharing this one with others.
