Tolerance – Persistent endurance in an uncomfortable environment.
He got irritated as usual. His superior officer has thrown one more of his tantrum on a simple issue. This happens almost every day. When he is about to start the day on a good note he will receive a mail or a call from the senior officer and he will shout at him asking for explanation on this and that.
He always used to finish his assigned tasks on time and even plan and coordinate his work for the next day on time. But his senior officer was very hard to please. But every time he was interrogated he always held his cool and never let his temper off. He explained his regard to him properly.
This continued for a long time and he tolerated all his tantrums. He continued his good work and soon he was noted by the owner of his concern. He started observing him closely and found the superior officer mistreating him badly. He immediately changed the senior to some other department. He was then able to work peacefully and with even more vigor to contribute more to himself and the company.
When Our savior was sentenced to crucifixion, given crown of thorns and whipped till he bled he tolerated everything to redeem us from sin. We can have one part of His tolerance and await His judgment in our life which is an assured paradise.
