1 Corinthians 13:4a New Living Translation (NLT)
4a Love is patient and kind.
If someone loves you, they will be kind as they wait for you to be ready for them. And for God to be ready for you to move forward to the next step of your life. If someone is not willing to patiently wait for you, they do not love you, because love is patient.
