Dear Amish Wisdom readers,
Each Friday this summer, I’ve been sharing ten things I’ve learned from the Amish. Today’s the last one in this “series.” Please feel free to chime in with your own insights about the Amish.
Waiting isn’t a verb. It’s an attitude. For the Amish, time is not something to be mastered, but respected. What a contrast to the non-Amish perception of time: there’s never enough of it!
Amish proverb: “Patience is a virtue that carries a lot of wait.”
The Lesson: The Amish can teach us to slow down. They remind us that Christians should look at life from a different perspective because we are part of a different kingdom—one that stretches into eternity.
What about you? What have you learned from the Amish?
