Moroni 7:45 Charity Suffereth Long and Is Kind

And charity suffereth long, and is kind, and envieth not, and is not puffed up, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil, and rejoiceth not in iniquity but rejoiceth in the truth, beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
(Moroni 7:45)
After reading this verse, I have a few questions for myself:
1. Am I long-suffering, or do I start complaining at the first sign of difficulty?
2. Am I kind, even when I’m not feeling good?  Am I kind toward those closest to me or only toward those whom I don’t see as often?
3. When I learn that someone has accomplished something, do I suppress my natural competitive response and find joy in their success?
4. When I accomplish something, do I get over myself quickly and turn my attention to serving others?
5. Am I even-tempered?  Can I adapt to circumstances which defy my expectations without reacting negatively?
6. Do I focus on the positive attributes of those around me and minimize the time spent dwelling on their faults and weaknesses?
After considering these questions, I will work on being more charitable today and will ask Heavenly Father for help in doing so.
