God, Patience, and Instant Gratification

We live in an instant-gratification culture. The development of digital media and smartphones has only compounded this value. Delayed gratification is the unpardonable sin of modern life, and telling someone they ought to wait to fulfill a desire—or heaven forbid, not fulfill it at all—is an American heresy . . . I suspect one of the reasons our culture is drifting away from faith and struggling to embrace God’s love, is that we’ve lost the patience necessary to recognize it.
