Celebrate God’s Love (2): His Love Is Patient

1Corinthians 13:4 | Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.”

This aspect of God’s love excites, awes and humbles me all at the same time. I know that I am a work in progress. I have come a long way from who I used to be. And the changes I see in me have been orchestrated by a loving Father who is very patient with me.

God’s depth of patience fills me with amazement, because I can be very impatient. Sometimes, looking back and remembering how God has been patient with me makes me wonder out aloud : What manner of love is this?

When it comes to patience, no human love can beat God’s love. Patience is such an integral part of God’s love that it is the first feature of His love mentioned in 1Corinthians 13. Look into your life today, I bet you will find reasons to celebrate God’s patient love for you.
