The Creator knows His human creatures all too well. God suffered long when He fearfully and wonderfully made us in secret and wove us together in the depths of the earth. He ordained every one of our days and wrote them in His book. God knows the exact time of our repentance and therefore waits. He is compassionate, gracious, not easily angered, and abounds in love. Because He is forever understanding and patient until the end, so must we also be with one another.
