Have you ever asked the question: "Why wait?" Well, here are four benefits of waiting to answer that question....
1. Waiting Builds Endurance
Patience builds endurance and endurance
produces character. Diligence, loyalty and honor are all qualities produced by
endurance that develop when we implement patience. Waiting actually helps shape
us into great friends, spouses and members of society.
2. Waiting Reveals Our True Motives
Waiting has a way of highlighting a person's character and
intent. People with poor motives won't wait long because they're not interested
in the full commitment. They're more interested in short-term gains or
self-indulgence. And if we're honest, we'll admit that we want someone who is
willing to wait because we want someone who is in it for the long haul.
3. Waiting Prepares Us
In many cases the waiting period actually serves as a time of
preparation for the answer. Waiting actively, enthusiastically and with a
hopeful heart will teach us how to remain focused, committed and passionate
when we finally gain what we have been waiting for.
4. Waiting Builds Anticipation
When we experience a long waiting period, we tend to cherish and
take care of what have been waiting for more than those who didn't wait. People
tend to treasure the things they have to wait for. Waiting for answers is a fact of life—nobody gets out of
it. So the question is not if we'll wait, but rather how we’ll wait.
