God is not impatient like us, who often want everything all at once, even in our dealings with other people. God is patient withus because he loves us, and those who love are able to understand, to hope, toinspire confidence; they do not give up, they do not burn bridges, tehy are able to forgive. Let us remember this in our lives as Christians: God always waits for us, even when we have left him behind! He is never far from us, and if we return to him, he is ready to embrace us.
