Hide-the-Word Wednesday: Slow to Anger

on November 20, 2013

Being a mother comes with so many blessings. There are the obvious ones, like kissing tiny toes, hearing first words, and watching little ones grow into young ladies and gentlemen who love the Lord. Parenting also teaches me so much about myself, for example, when I respond impatiently (OK, angrily) to ever-piling messes and never-ending bedtimes. My God, on the other hand, is slow to become angry with me.

The Lord is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and rich in love. The Lord is good to all; he has compassion on all he has made.

Aren’t you glad God isn’t like us?? What are your favorite “ways” of the Lord, that are not like our ways?


Speak the truth in love
