"Love is not easily angered" I Cor. 13:5

18 'The LORD is slow to anger, abounding in love and forgiving sin and rebellion.
17 They refused to listen and failed to remember the miracles you performed among them. They became stiff-necked and in their rebellion appointed a leader in order to return to their slavery.

Ps 103:8Psalm 103
8 The LORD is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love.
Ps 145:8Psalm 145
8 The LORD is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and rich in love.
13 Rend your heart and not your garments. Return to the LORD your God, for he is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in love, and he relents from sending calamity.
2 He prayed to the LORD, "O LORD, is this not what I said when I was still at home? That is why I was so quick to flee to Tarshish. I knew that you are a gracious and compassionate God, slow to anger and abounding in love, a God who relents from sending calamity.
3 The LORD is slow to anger and great in power; the LORD will not leave the guilty unpunished. His way is in the whirlwind and the storm, and clouds are the dust of his feet.
When I try to run from obedience to God, He will always catch me but thankfully he is slow to be angry with me. I love You Father!
