James 1:My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces [a]patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing. 

            Fishing can be a great teacher of the virtue of patience. The attitude with which we take up our rod and reel will say much about our capacity to learn and understand our quarry. Truth be known, sometimes it’s juts as important to just go whether or not we are particularly engaged in the sport. It can also be a great time to just listen as God speaks. This sort of patience and listening may be the key to understanding Jesus’ call to Peter, James, and John. Then He said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.” Matthew 4:19

             There are multiple occurrences of the word “patience” in the New Testament, but a similar theme runs through them all. Patience seems to be a training and discipline as well as an act of will. In the final analysis is a virtue of the saints and a characteristic of a mature Christian. What we endure for the sake of learning patience will make us strong to withstand the worst the world, the flesh, and the Devil may throw at us.
