Don’t you just hate that word for yourself and yet wish others would practice it a whole lot more!?!
Caregivers are my unsung heroes. They daily go through the routine of breakfast, medicine, dressing, sometimes bathing, changing linens, answering questions, and on and on and it is just 9am. There are many times when you are asked a question over and over and over again. How do you respond the first, second or even the third time? How do you respond the 10th time?
Answering with patience and the right tone of voice is not about self-control; it is all about God-control. It is not about you and it is not about them; it is all about God! When we answer questions or do the daily chores, choose to do them as though you were doing them for God! It turns the daily routine into a joyful time of serving our Lord.
I Corinthians 10:31 “Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.”
