2 Peter 3
3.5 deliberately... This is a good reminder since we often have this "noble savage" view of the lost that they (with the exception of a few diabolical dictators and that person that is mean to me) really want the Lord, but just don't understand.
3.8 So this guy thinks to himself, if a day is like a thousand years to God, I ought to ask Him for a couple dollars. So, that night in his prayers he, feeling rather smart, asks God for a few dollars. The voice from heaven replies, "Sure, I'll get that to you in a couple days."
3.9 toward you... Hmmm... That doesn't sound nearly as universal has this verse is often thought to be.
17.3 the Lord tests the hearts... I like to think about this in the context of Psalm 139.23-24.
17.5 It seems to me that insulting your Maker is pretty foolish.
17.21 the father of a fool has no joy... A sad, sad, tragic verse.
17.28 This is just all around good advise.
18.2 Understanding is more important than expressing your opinion.
18.12 humility comes before honor... As per Phil. 2.5-9.
18.19 We sometimes loose sight of this truth. Often doing things the slow way to avoid offending is quicker and better than getting something done in a hurry and then working through the arduous process of restoring an offended brother.
