The most lovable quality anyone can possess is tolerance. It is the vision that enables one to see things from anotherâ€™s viewpoint. It is the generosity that concedes to others the right to their own opinion and their own peculiarities. It is the bigness that enables us to let people be happy in their own way, instead of our way.
The Practice of the Presence of God
I still believe that all spiritual life consists of practicing Godâ€™s presence and that anyone who practices it correctly will soon attain spiritual fulfillment. To accomplish this, it is necessary for the heart to be emptied of everything that would offend God. He wants to possess your heart completely. Before any work can be done in your soul, God must be totally in control.
From Dr. Bobâ€™s Library
While I was at the Springtime in the Ozarks Convention this year, a fellow AA member gave me a little card that gets better each time I read it. Tolerance was printed on one side of the card and The Practice of the Presence of God, was on the other side.
I was told that the quotes were from Dr. Bobâ€™s Library.
Just wanted to pass them on. Hope you enjoy.
