God Is Patient

Numbers 14:18. The Lord is slow to anger and abundant in loving kindness, forgiving iniquity and transgression; but He will by no means clear the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and the fourth generations.

We should be thankful that God is patient.  Our sins are many, but His grace is more.  Can you imagine how we test the patience of God with every tick of the clock? We allow fear to cause us to sin.  We are anxious. We hold grudges. We allow bitterness to grow in our hearts. We chase after other gods, although we don"t see it like that.  We focus on trivial matters while neglecting God.  We don't pray and if we do pray they are shallow prayers.  We confess our need of God but we seldom spend time with God.  The question we ought to consider is why is God long suffering/patient with us.
