“The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.” – 2 Peter 3:9.
No one has disrupted the automobile market more in the last 100 years than Elon Musk.
In 2006, Elon outlined Tesla’s automotive strategy. For the next ten years, Elon quietly stuck to the plan with patience and focus. He built luxury electric cars, but most people could not afford them. It was not until his planned Model 3 that a Tesla car was affordable to many.
Then in 2016, he announced a second move for Tesla. It was one that moved Tesla beyond the traditional car market, with a plan to reconfigure our cities, energy systems, and our impact on the environment.
Of himself, Elon Musk said, “I slave not over deadlines but solely for these challenges I set for myself.”
On the subject of patience, Elon said: “Patience is a virtue, and I’m learning patience. It’s a tough lesson.”
In this life we need to be patient.
Today in prayer, thank Jesus for His patience toward you and ask Him that you may be patient in all things.
“Be patient enough to live one day at a time as Jesus taught us, letting yesterday go and leaving tomorrow till it arrives.” – John F. Newton.
God’s Word: “A patient man has great understanding, but a quick-tempered man displays folly.” – Proverbs 14:29.
