– Toleration seems to be at the forefront of every argument and hot topic in our culture today. We demand toleration on every issue under the sun. But toleration costs nothing to the person making the demand. It is built upon thoughts and philosophies and not relationships. And everyone knows relationships are messy and uncontrollable. However when they work well, nothing could be more beautiful. Relationships require you to pay a personal cost and that is not easy but something we should pursue above toleration.
Through our prayers — an opportunity to pray for the needs of our community
– Ask God to show you how to build strong relationships and help you be willing to pay the cost.
