LIFE Skill: Longsuffering/Patience

Open your Bibles to 2 Peter chapter 3 and read verse 9 together.

God suffers long with us, which means He has an immense amount of patience with us as He unconditionally loves us. We are a stubborn and ignorant people, but He continues to pursue our hearts. It is His patient love that encourages us to repent from our sin and turn towards Jesus!

Discuss the following questions together as a family.

  1. How would you describe patience? Can you think of someone who is patient?
  2. When was a time that you were impatient?
  3. How has God been patient with you?

Practical: Share how God has been patient with you with someone at school or work.
