Do Not Despise God's Blessings

Paul spoke to the Jews who condemned sin in others, but practiced the same things. He said, “Or do you despise the riches of His goodness, forbearance, and longsuffering, not knowing that the goodness of God leads you to repentance?” (Romans 2:4).
God had been good, forbearing, and longsuffering with them, even as He had been with the rest of the world, including you and me.
Let us not despise those three blessings, for by them we enjoy all the other blessings of God. Let us not despise those blessings by disobedience, but let us embrace those blessings by submitting to Him who so loves us that He would shower upon us goodness, forbearance, and His longsuffering nature in spite of our past sin-filled lives.
