Tender and Tolerant



Tender and Tolerant
by Charles R. Swindoll
The fountain of wisdom is a bubbling brook.
Proverbs 18:4

How far you go in life depends on your being tender
with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic
with the striving, and tolerant of the weak and the strong.
Because someday in life you will have been all of these. –
–George Washington Carver
I have admired those words for years.
They reflect a perspective easily forgotten in a dizzy
schedule of demands and deadlines.It is easy in such a scene
to become shortsighted, to think that now is forever.
But those who sustain a close companionship with
wisdom tend to be more tender, compassionate,
sympathetic, and tolerant than those whose world
revolves around themselves.
With wisdom comes depth and stability.

When we navigate through life under

full sail with wisdom at the helm,

we may not miss all of the storms,

but we will have the strength to persevere.

We can face the unforeseen without the fear of sinking.

I post this quote on behalf of a friend for a friend.

I request all my friends who visit my site to

pray for a young friend of mine who has been

recently diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma multi-cells.

She is in a distant land all by herself

without any family around except for

her beloved husband for support.

She is away from her two beloved children

and she need our prayers.

Presently she is undergoing PET-Scan and chemotherapy.

I beseech your prayers for her to have all the strength she needs.
