Ohhh y'all, I'm really bad at this one. Like, really bad. And I'm not sure why but my tolerance level has gotten worse instead of better. It's not that I don't like the person, or think they are great. But some things they do make me see red and it's on like Donkey Kong.
I'm so trying to work in this aspect if life. I totally realize there are many faults being overlooked on my behalf because I'm truly not a very good person. I mean, I like to think I'm good but in reality I'm a very large sinner, a baby Christian trying to find my way in all the wrong places and making large mistakes along the way.
But the cool thing is with every mistake and every wrong turn, God is carrying me out of the darkness and bringing me back home to him. He is forgiving me of all the hurtful and disappointing moves I've made.
"But, our God, You are merciful and quick to forgive, You are loving, kind, and very patient. So You never turned away from them." Nehemiah 9:17
So shouldn't we follow this example and love despite the flaws?
