The Reward of Patience
The hardest part about Christmas was waiting for everyone to get there. Then, the fun started. “Now, dear friends, do not let this one thing escape your notice that a single day is like a thousand years with the Lord and a thousand years are like a single day. The Lord is not slow concerning his promise, as some regard slowness, but is being patient toward you, because he does not wish for any to perish but for all to come to repentance.” (2 Peter 3:8, 9) The hardest part about Easter is waiting for the Lord. Then I remember Christmas; and how patience is rewarded.
