Putting Up with Faithlessness

Do you get frustrated with people’s lack of faith? Jesus did. A man had a demon-possessed child, and the disciples could not cast out the demon, so Jesus said in exasperation, “O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you and bear with you? Bring your son here” (Luke 9:41).
While Jesus showed His exasperation, He did not give up on people, nor did He lash out at them. He revealed their problem, but He kept working with them. Since He is our Master and Teacher, we have to learn from Him to live the same way with people.
