Tolerance is described in the dictionary as a fair, objective, and permissive attitude toward those whose opinions, practices, race, religion, nationality, etc., differ from one’s own; freedom from bigotry. The opposite of being tolerant is to be narrow minded, unbending, inflexible and one who is considered a bigot.

In today’s world we’re asked to be tolerant of everyone, even if it goes against what we believe. It has become the new “in thing” to be. Jesus told His disciples not to judge others, lest they be judged by God. We all face that final judgment, but even though God is tolerant and has forgiven the entire world, He will not receive those who defile His word or His name.

In my opinion it’s much easier to go along with the masses and accept everything and everybody. It’s harder to stand up for what we believe in and stay true to it. Will we be tolerant today? I hope we can continue to remain so without losing our convictions.

God is the most tolerant of all of us. He loves each and every one of us, despite our sinful natures and He wants us to be with Him, but He also expects us to stay strong in our faith, true to His Word and to follow His commandments.

Dear God, As we draw near another presidential election, help us remember those who are running for office. Help us also to keep open minds and look at facts rather than rhetoric. You have placed our governing bodies for a purpose. Our voice – our vote – our opinions can best be expressed through the election process. Amen!

“First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people,  for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way.” 1 Timothy 2:1-2


About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.
