Singh: the limitless patience

Wednesday, March 23, 2011
But you, O Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger,
    abounding in love and faithfulness.
    —Psalm 86:15 (NIV)
    [God’s] patience is infinite. Men, like small kettles, boil quickly with wrath at the least wrong. Not so God. If God were as wrathful, the world would have been a heap of ruins long ago.
    ... Sadhu Sundar Singh (1889-1929), Reality and Religion: meditations on God, man, and nature, London: Macmillan, 1924, p. 24 (see the book)
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, grant me a patient mind and heart.
