God's Gentle Patience

From Samuel McPheeters Glasgow, Daily Communion, 126:

"If we are actually so small and frail; if we are so impotent and helpless in the great eternalities, shall we not be humble in heart? Why do we ever strut about and vautn ourselves? Only in God's gentle patience can we ever come into any abiding greatness. All the strength we so painfully lack, he possesses. Yes, all this and infinitely more. And he is our Friend and our Father. He has wrought all the glories that we his children might enjoy them with him. Come up close to the great heart of God and rest on him every care and burden. Share with him every joy and blessing he so freely gives, and you shall walk in the light and not stumble."
