Making Allowances

I got a chuckle out of a bumper sticker I saw the other day – “I’m tired of stupid people.” Truth is, I laughed a little too hard as I drove along.

Once again, I am reminded of the need to allow God’s word to shape me, especially passages like Colossians 3:13 –

“Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.” NIV

“You must make allowance for each other’s faults and forgive the person who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others.” NLT
