Why the Lord is so patient with humans. – Sirach 18:8-12

What are human beings? Of what use are we? The good that we do – the evil that that we do – what does it all mean? If we live a hundred years, we have lived an unusually long time, but compared with all eternity, those years are like a drop of water in the ocean, like a single grain of sand. That is why the Lord is so patient with us, why he is so free with his mercy. He looks at us and knows that we are doomed to die; that is why he is so willing to forgive us.
