Spiritual Gifts Part 245: Real patience only comes as a grace gift from God.

 The Greek word “patience” (NASB) is makrothumia.

The Greek word for “perseverance” is hupomone.

Makrothumia means forbearance which creates a gracious lenient attitude toward others.

Hupomone means courageous endurance; a patient steadfast waiting with hope.

Makrothumia means NOT lashing out, not easily provoked.

Hupomone means NOT quitting, not losing heart.

PRO 16:32
He who is slow to anger is better than the mighty,
And he who rules his spirit, than he who captures a city.

“It is easier to find men who will volunteer to die, than to find those who are willing to endure pain with patience.”
Julius Caesar

makrothumia is patience exhibited under ill treatment by a person, while hupomone is patience shown under trials, difficulties and hardships.


ISA 61:3

So they will be called oaks of righteousness,

The planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.


“You must first have a lot of patience to learn to have patience.” Stanislaw Lec

Real patience can only come as a grace gift from God.

JAM 1:3
Knowing this, that the testing of your faith produces patience [hupomone].

COL 1:11 strengthened with all power, according to His glorious might, for the attaining of all steadfastness [hupomone] and patience [makrothumia]
