Patience is essential to fatherhood. Everything from parenthood to relationships to everyday life, your patience will be tested. You will encounter so many obstacles as you mature from a lone man to a father. Obstacles that are not easy, many that will test you, and a few that will make you question your faith. How you implement patience in these moments will set the standard for your household. A man who feeds on anger is quick to react, while a man who feeds on patience is enlightened and loving. Do not let impatience and anger dictate the outcome of the hardships that you will face along the way. Instead, calm your spirit and relax your tongue. Reevaluate the situation and once you are ready, patiently let love guide you.
