Tolerance

Tolerance
      My dad used to say, “I can’t tolerate that…,” and then fill in the blank. There were a lot of things that he couldn’t “tolerate,” like lying, laziness and bad behavior to name a few. Off hand, it seems like a good idea, especially if you’re not tolerating bad stuff, but the down side is that such “intolerance” often laps over into bigotry.
      Jesus was far more tolerant than we are. “He came to save sinners,” writes Paul. Then he goes on…”among whom I am foremost of all” (1 Tim. 1.15). This is a good enough reason for us to be tolerant of others because Jesus saved us. “God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us…” (Rom.5.8).
      Now, God does not tolerate sin, and neither should we, but Jesus acted respectfully towards all sinners. He lovingly and assuredly drew the sinner towards Himself “the light of the world,” and “the truth.”
      We can and should do the same. Yes, tolerating people who are different than us, and who may offend our sense of right, is difficult, but it finally blesses God and helps His redemptive plan.
