2 Peter 3:1-10

Time flies…

Time is of the essence…

Time waits for no one…

There are plenty of sayings about time. Time is such a funny thing, sometimes it can go so fast and other times go soooo sloooowww. Like during the last 10 minutes of school, or the day before you go on holiday.

In this passage Peter speaks about time, and how everything in our lives is done on God’s time – not human time. It’s hard to get your head around, but Peter says a day in our life can be a thousand years in God’s time. Incredible huh?

Peter explains that God is so patient with us. He wants us to say sorry for our sins and come to him, and is infinitely patient with us whilst we do this. We may think that he is slow in keeping his promises, but what do we know about time if one day to us is like a thousand years to God? Lets take time this week to thank God for keeping his promises, even though we may feel like we are waiting ages for things to happen!

Dear Father, thank you for always being patient with us, and for keeping your promises. Help us to always be patient with ourselves and towards others. Amen.
