See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient about it.
An impatient farmer may want to find a new occupation. Farmers have no control over the weather and crops do not appear overnight. James is writing about the sustenance of the farmer’s life. When it comes to our needs as Christians, God is in control. “Your heavenly Father knows what you need” (Matt. 6:31). You cannot control the weather, so why worry about the crops? Work diligently and patiently trust in God sustaining the details of your life (Gal. 6:9). Seek first God’s righteousness and everything will be all right!
Pray for patience when it comes to physical matters.
