God is patient, so we can be patient with others and in life.
23 gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.
8 The Lord is merciful and gracious,
slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.
9 He will not always chide,
nor will he keep his anger forever.
10 He does not deal with us according to our sins,
nor repay us according to our iniquities. (ESV)
