The Greek word for patience is hypomoni, which means “endurance.”… But patience also means endurance. The greatest form of patience, and its greatest test, is patience in the face of suffering— the ability to endure wrongs and afflictions patiently. It is rooted in humility, for the humble man does not consider himself worthy of more than he receives… That is why the humble man is patient with people.
