In the height of World War II, the Daily Word for August 29th, 1942 was “Tolerance” and the message said:
Tolerance of the social, political, and religious beliefs and practices of other people is more than indifference. It is an attitude of friendly interest, a desire to see the other fellow’s point of view. It may be even more than this, for we are often called upon to be forgiving in our tolerance. A healthy disagreement as to habits of thinking and living, as to secular and religious ideas, need not create intolerance. We should remember that our personal, national, and international life progresses only as it moves forward under the banner of freedom in thought, speech, and activity. Christ in us is our guard against destructive propaganda, and we are daily learning to sift out from a multitude of ideas those which are conducive to Christian unity and world peace.
Wise words. Join us this Sunday as we delve more deeply into this Wisdom of those who set such an inspiring example. Seems like this message could not be more timely!
With much love, Linda
