But I Will Not Forget You

But I Will Not Forget You…

If you’ve ever been chased around the dining room table by a parent – most likely it wasn’t your mother – but your father. My father would count up to three. My mother would count up to three thousand and beyond.

In fact she’s still counting. A mother’s love is a picture of the love of God. Often we picture God as a severe judge ready to lose His temper.

But the truth is, the love of God is as compassionate and tender as the love of a mother – only more so. And that means He must be very patient.

In fact the Bible says that the reason the age has gone on so long is solely because of the patience of God for people to repent and get saved. Thank God that He’s patient – That He puts up with you – and me – and all of us.

What should that make us do? It should make us all the more zealous to bless Him, to please Him, to make Him smile. God has the patience of a saint … even more than a saint… the patience of a mother… and even more. And in that, is our salvation.

May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you the same attitude of mind toward each other that Christ Jesus had. Romans 15:5

Be patient with that impatient person today and make God smile.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
