Tolerance is a popular word right now. The thing is, the word “tolerance” actually implies that we disagree with that which we are tolerating. To be tolerant means, in its purest form, in its Christian context that:
. I may disagree with what you are doing but I will love you anyway.
. I may disagree with what you are doing but I will treat you with respect anyway.
. I might not accept what you are doing as correct, but I will accept you.
That’s what Jesus did in His relationships, and if we are followers of Jesus we will do that also. Lord help me to change!
