With patience a ruler may be persuaded, and a soft tongue will break a bone.
Proverbs 25:15

People in authority aren’t there by accident. They’ve got some sort of skill, political prestige or social sway that has put them in place regardless of how you feel about it. There are times when you’re under such authority where patience can seem a distant virtue. Be intentional to lead as well, showing love, integrity and steadfastness, and be patient. Give God the time and room to do what only He can.
