Well said Tim!
I have sometimes taken issue with people who say they are tolerant when they are exercising not tolerance but agreement. To clarify, when it comes to something generally thought wrong, I can’t say I am tolerant of it when actually I am simply okay with it. So while I am patting myself on the back for exercising real tolerance you come along and remind me Jesus sets the bar higher. Thanks for a short and useful lesson.
I think real tolerance can be a sign of real love at times, Bill, don’t you?
Tolerance, in the light of Jesus, looks rather more like disdain disguised as pity. Thank you, Tim.
For me it depends on whether I am tolerating the right things or not. I wouldn’t want to tolerate someone oppressing another person, for example. But I do want to learn how to tolerate things that merely bug my personal preferences.
