I might be intolerant of intolerance, but the fact is, God's tolerance for EVERY sin known to humanity except for the sins of murder and suicide is much greater than that of my own. I understand the Grace of God perfectly. As the Apostle Paul called himself the chief of all sinners, I would suggest that God's Grace as it extends to me really has very few equals. I don't say this to boast, but that I am guilty of at least trying to take my own life, even if I have not taken the life of another. People like myself who know they are redeemed, even from themselves, really do understand the Grace of God most perfectly. It is those who don't know God's Grace that are the least tolerant of the sins of others. I really should be as forgiving of ALL sins as I say that God is. But then I am NOT God. I know what sin is. And if I say that the Grace of God covers EVERY single sin except for murder and suicide, then really, it's up to me to be an advocate for God's Grace in every way possible.
I do this by NOT allowing the little things in life to bother me, but the fact is this is easier said than done. It's up to me to live as a relaxed life as I can possibly live. How then do I do this? I have said that I am fairly reclusive. I am not around people very much. But that is my choice. I don't allow time schedules to cause me stress. Some might say that this is easier for me to do because I am older and don't have the responsibilities of small children. Actually, I don't know what to say to those who feel there aren't enough hours in a day. I don't have that problem. I live on my own time schedule. But even when I was raising my two sons, I had a sense of Peace in most that I did because in fact, my sons were still pretty young when I had my experience with my Angels.
But even with time restraints, one HAS to make time to relax. It has to be as much a part of your schedule as eating and sleeping. Relaxing helps you cope with all the issues of life. And when you feel stressed for whatever reasons, it is imperative that you take time to remember that God's Grace extends to EVERY area of your life as long as you don't purposely take a Human Life. This means too that you can tolerate differences you have with people, whether those differences are political, economical, or ideological, including theological. Relaxation can help you understand the differences that people have with each other. Understand that no matter what happens in your life, God is ALWAYS in control. As long as you do NOT or have not purposely taken a Human Life, you yourself have nothing to worry about. And maybe from my words you are worried about others you might know. Understand that God's tolerance extend to His Grace about you. If you can understand the meaning of God's Grace in YOUR life, you will understand the meaning of God's Grace in the lives of others, even if they don't recognize such Grace as you do. Doing so will make you more relaxed and accepting of others as well as accepting all things in your life. I am Brother Ralphie writing for my Angels from The Angels of Life Institute. Peace.
