God is Patient

Imagine how nice it would be if all people were patient. Imagine what the world would be like if all people were kind and gentle. That would be a wonderful world!
I am so thankful to know that God is patient with me. Several times in our verses today, Peter says that God is patient. Why is God patient? So that no person will be lost. God wants “everyone to change their ways and stop sinning” (verse 9b).
God loves us so much that He is willing to be patient while we disobey Him and sin. God hopes that we will learn about Jesus and obey Him. God wants us to ask Him for forgiveness and give our lives to Him.
Thank God today for His great patience and kindness. Ask Him to help you be patient with other people as they learn more about His plan for their lives.
