"As ye have received, as ye are moved, as ye apply that ye received, give to those that seek. Be patient, be kind. Speak not unkindly of anyone. Let not gossip or unkind things, either in thought or deed, be in thine experience." (262-98)
Passive patience, to be sure, has its place; but consider patience rather from the precepts of God's relationship to man: love unbounded is patience. Love manifested is patience. Endurance at times is patience, consistence ever is patience.
