Or do you have no regard for the wealth of His kindness and tolerance and patience [in withholding His wrath]? Are you [actually] unaware or ignorant [of the fact] that God’s kindness leads you to repentance [that is, to change your inner self, your old way of thinking—seek His purpose for your life]?
Romans 2:4 AMP
The LORD’s forgiveness is for peace and His grace is for growth, allowing us time to mature into our purpose. He does not leave us as we started this journey, we are to grow up!
