Tolerance is a sign of a matured person.
We can’t accept a mother’s behaviors when she becomes intolerant for her little children. We can’t approve a father’s intolerant actions towards his teenage children when they needed his attention.
Our parents have proved to be matured as they have been tolerant of each & every immature actions of their children.
They have always defeated intolerance with their immense tolerance.

I just smiled at myself when I read this quote by Helen Keller, the great:
“Toleration is the greatest gift of the mind; it requires the same effort of the brain that it takes to balance oneself on a bicycle.”
I have never ridden a bicycle in my entire life so it is definitely a difficult task for me but those who know it & do it regularly for them, I guess it is an easy thing to do.
Helen Keller must have practiced tolerance so much that it seemed to her like bicycle riding.
Yes, we need to practice tolerance daily to make it a habit in our life.
“Finally, all of you, have unity of mind, sympathy, brotherly love, a tender heart, and a humble mind. Do not repay evil for evil or reviling for reviling, but on the contrary, bless, for to this you were called, that you may obtain a blessing. For “Whoever desires to love life and see good days, let him keep his tongue from evil and his lips from speaking deceit; let him turn away from evil and do good; let him seek peace and pursue it.”
If we sum up the whole scripture passage in one single word, then the word will be TOLERANCE.
If we have the power to tolerate each other’s behaviours then we can create a great environment around us.
” Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.”
How beautiful the world will be if we learn tolerance every moment we talk to each other.
“The highest result of education is tolerance.”
So true it is, but I am sure education doesn’t mean degrees here. Its the learning of life’s values where education has a greater role to play.
