1 Thessalonians 5:14 (KJV) God Said So

1 Thessalonians 5:14 (KJV)
Now we exhort you, brethren, warn them that are unruly, comfort the feebleminded, support the weak, be patient toward all men. 
Wouldn’t it be something to live in a community where everyone was exactly what you wished them to be? I’m not so sure because I imagine that I would wish them a bit wrong.
Oh well, it’s not reality anyway.
In a world filled with unruly, feebleminded and weak believers there are also even many more who are not believers.
What do we do?!
The Bible answer is to be patient.
The practice of patience is, as much as anything, a practice of trust. In the world’s view it would probably be trust that everything will work out eventually. Even if it doesn’t work out the way they wish, life will go on.
This is probably why we see an increasing level of panic in the world. They no longer believe life will go on.
  • Climate change
  • Political unrest 
  • Religious contention 
is, in their mind, threatening to destroy life as they know it.
The Christian has no such reason to lack trust, and therefore, patience. Our trust is in the Lord and we trust His Word. He has a plan and we are assured He has not lost control of that plan. We can be patient with all men because we believe God knows them and, regardless of their position toward God, He has them in hand.
It is all going to work out.
God said so.
