Inside Out Character Class: Patience video

Great works are performed not by strength but by perseverance – Samuel Johnson.

Love is patient (1 Corinthians 13:4). To learn patience is to learn love. Patience is that calmness in our hearts when everything else around us urges us to run, to be aggressive, and to not wait. But when we are patient with others, it helps them feel loved; thinking “I am important enough to you that you are willing to wait for me.”

Patience Activity
1. Split to groups with equal number of students
2. With a straw, blow the cotton ball from one end of the line to the other.
3. The key is not which group finishes first. Rather, which group has the least amount of deviations of the cotton ball from the line.

In our exercise, one of the teams finished quickly. But because they were not patient, their group had the most number of cotton balls being blown off the line. So from first place, they had to settle for last place.
