Fruit of Longsuffering


It is a fruit I live. Sometimes I feel like life is one long series of events that all lead to some form of suffering. Maybe I am alone in this thought process, however, I suspect that I am not. I hope that this book and my life testimony encourage all who read…

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. – Galatians 5:22-23

The original Greek word for longsuffering is makrothumia (mak-roth-oo-mee’-ah) and means, forbearance, fortitude, patience, patiently.

I want to look at the dictionary meanings for the following…

Patience – The bearing of provocation, annoyance, misfortune, or pain with out complaint, loss of temper, or anger. Quiet steady perseverance; even tempered.

Forbearance – Patient endurance, self control. An abstaining from the enforcement of a right.

Fortitude – Mental and emotional strength in facing adversity, danger, or temptation.
