God is Patient.

Reading: 2 Peter 3

God is patient. Impatience is often caused by not counting the cost of what something will require. Because of God’s other attributes, He never has the wrong expectations and therefore is always patient. God is patient with us in regard to sin, sanctification and forgiveness. Patience is a way to express love. Jesus showed this in His life on earth with his patience towards sinners, circumstances and suffering.
