Thought of the Day !!

But you must not forget, dear friends, that a day is like a thousand years to the Lord, and a thousand years is like a day. The Lord isn't really being slow about his promise to return, as some people think. No, he is being patient for your sake. He does not want anyone to perish, so he is giving more time for everyone to repent. 
                                 2 Peter 3:8-9 (NLT)

Our Father in Heaven is much more patient that we are.  We see the injustices of the world and want justice served.  People of all ages have had times of injustice.  There have been times of war.  There have been times of discrimination.  There have been times of harsh rulers.  And the rich always have seemed to get richer at the poor people's expense. 

So what does God do about it?  He waits.  He is waiting patiently, not because He likes watching injustices go on all around us.  But instead He waits patiently until all people are given every opportunity to change their ways and repent.  So we may have to wait a little while longer for the glory of Heaven, but at the same time, the waiting will provide many more that same glorious end.

In the love of Christ,
