Thankful For God’s Amazing Patience

Perfect_Harmony_by_AavisLongsuffering, forbearing patience is to be the Christian’s reflection of the character of God.  It is part of God’s character to be slow to anger and quick to be merciful. Part of the incomprehensibility of God in terms of my own relationship with Him is this: I cannot fathom how a holy God has been able to put up with me marring His creation to the degree I have for three score and five years. For me to live another day requires a continuation of God’s gracious patience with my sin… It becomes even more difficult to fathom when we see a sinless Being being more patient with sinful beings that sinful beings are with each other.

~R.C. Sproul

Be patient with others today because God has been patient with you.
