God is Patient

God is love and love is patient (1 John 4:16; 1 Corinthians 13:4).

Patience is “self-restraint in the face of provocation which does not hastily retaliate or promptly punish.”*

Because God’s love is patient He answers our daily prayers for mercy.

*John MacArthur, The MacArthur New Testament Commentary, 1 Corinthians, p.338.
