The fall is often a season of waiting -- waiting for winter, waiting for the holidays, waiting for the Super Bowl, and so on. The Apostle, James, captured this theme with a farming metaphor to remind us of the importance of waiting on God's timing.
Therefore, brothers, be patient until the Lord’s coming. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth and is patient with it until it receives the early and the late rains. You also must be patient. Strengthen your hearts, because the Lord’s coming is near.
James 5: 7-8
