Or do you think lightly of the riches of His kindness and forbearance and patience, not knowing that the kindness of God leads you to repentance? But because of your stubbornness and unrepentant heart you are storing up wrath for yourself in the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God. Romans 2:4-5

I remember how over-awed I was when I was saved. Suddenly, the weight of all my sins had been transferred to the cross, and I was as light as a feather. I was full of gratitude and would do absolutely anything to try to please God.

But often, we are shallow creatures with short memories. How often does a parent say, “But I did all that for you for years, and you don’t have time for me?” They feel betrayed and abandoned – and unimportant.

I wonder if God ever feels like that? We get so caught up in all our blessings, we don’t have time for the Provider of the blessings. We’re too busy and we do think lightly of the riches of His kindness and forbearance and patience.

God, forgive us and help us to remember You.
