While Jesus Christ was full of both grace and truth, most people, due to character and inclinations, tend to lean toward one or the other. While some see the greatest value in the truth and find a lot of meaning in life by knowing and acting on what is true, others find great enjoyment in relationships and in letting people be themselves even if those people do not obey God.

To walk like Jesus did, we have to know when to call people back to the truth and when to extend grace, and in the meantime we must use what God uses: tolerance, often called “forbearance.” In this teaching, which further develops the subject of grace and truth, John Schoenheit examines the balance of truth, grace, and tolerance in our daily lives.
