Or do you show contempt for the riches of his kindness, tolerance and patience, not realizing that God’s kindness leads you toward repentance?
This is an interesting verse to me. It seems to be asking us: Do you really think your behavior is okay, just because God continues to shower you with grace and blessings? God’s grace should always be turning us back to reflection and then repentance. His love for us should lead us to repent for our sins. When I realize all God has done for me, and realize the kind of love that shows, I can’t help but feel remorse for the times I have done the wrong thing.
God above, I am sorry for all of the times I have disappointed you. They are so numerous, it is embarrassing. I don’t deserve your blessings, but you continue to shower them on me. May my behavior better reflect the purity of your love. Amen
