God's Patience

Deutoronomy 31:6

     Oh what a tangled web we weave when we attempt to deceive.  Sin begins in our mind and then we try to justify it with our warped thoughts.  One thing you can be sure of is God never changes, nor do His rules of right and wrong.
    I think the verse above addresses how our rationalizing thoughts are wrong.  We can think that if an immediate and visible consequence doesn't occur after we sin, then we either got away with it or God understood our side.  Wrong, that's your sinful self talking to you.  I heard a robber on tv saying he asked God to not let him get caught just one more time.  I can guarantee you that his request won't be answered. God will not let sin go unanswered.
    God sent His Son to answer for all the sin in the world.  His patience in waiting for you to accept it is indescribable.
