STOP AND THINK – Until you have learned to be tolerant with those who do not always agree with you … you will be neither successful nor happy. (Napoleon Hill, American author, writing on success)

We are urged today to be tolerant, to be understanding and supportive of everyone, no matter how unconventional their conduct and lifestyle. Why? Because all human beings are created in the image of God and, therefore, have infinite value. We may not approve of another’s conduct, but we should reach out to help them become all that God intended them to be.

God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness” … So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them. (Genesis 1:26-27)
