In today’s society, tolerance is a common theme. Unfortunately, it is often misunderstood and misused. (Jesse Deloe, writer and editor)

The dictionary: tolerance is “sympathy or indulgence for beliefs or practices differing from or conflicting with one’s own.” Americans have often shown amazing tolerance, but today’s society seems to have limited it, making political correctness the standard and excluding any who dissent from their positions. But, to all, we should demonstrate openness of mind.

The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,  gentleness and self-control (Galatians 5:22-23).
