In this week’s reading, St. Paul urges the Corinthians to do everything for the glory of God, even if it means tolerance for those with different beliefs. This took great courage on the part of the Corinthians since they faced many people who were hostile to their Christian faith in those times.
Things are not much different for us today. Like St. Paul, we are called to imitate Jesus for the glory of God. That means respecting others regardless of their culture or religion. It means having patience even when we disagree…promoting peace over controversy…putting the rights of others before our own.
Winston Churchill once said, “it takes courage to stand up and speak; it also takes courage to sit down and listen.” Let the words of Jesus guide your actions of courage and tolerance: “Love one another as I have loved you.”
