is that calm and unruffled temper with which a good man bears the evils of life. We have set before us in the Scriptures the most powerful motives to excite us to the attainment of this grace:

(1) God is a God of patience (Romans 15:5).

(2) It is enjoined by the Gospel (Romans 12:12).

(3) The present state of man renders the practice of it absolutely necessary (Hebrews 10:36).

(4) Eminent examples of it are presented for our encouragement (Job 1:22; Hebrews 12:2).

(5) Lastly, we are to remember that all our trials.borne with patience will terminate in, triumph (Romans 2:7; James 5:7-8).
