Patience Iago

There's great wisdom in the statement Jafar makes to Iago many a times in the Disney movie Aladdin, "Patience Iago."  Patience is a tricky subject.  Patience is more than just waiting.  It's also about not getting frustrated or discouraged. 

Alma gives a great scripture about patience.  Alma 26:27 - "Now when our hearts were depressed, and we were about to turn back, behold, the Lord comforted us, and said: Go amongst thy brethren, the Lamanites, and bear with patience thine afflictions, and I will give unto you success."  What a dynamite scripture.  It shows how important patience is.  No matter how lousy our day is going, or how much we are discouraged.  Bear with patience thine afflictions and we will have success.  That is a promise.  And the Lord doesn't break promises, so if we do our part by having patience, we will be blessed with success in whatever aspect we need.

So when we're in those tough situation where our frustration might get the best of us, just think of the wise words that Jafar spoke, "Patience Iago."
