From Words of Life weekly Devotional, by Dr. Robert Jeffress, 03/04/2016
When you hear the name Jesus, what is the first word that comes to your mind? Gentle, loving, patient, and compassionate are usually the top choices. One descriptor that is usually not at the top of anyone’s list is intolerant. To employ such a word to describe the Lamb of God borders on blasphemy, most people would think.

“He explained to me that because of things going on in his personal life and his professional career – that he really needed to avoid controversy right now. We are disappointed.” – Dr. Jeffress, Pastor of First Baptist Church, Dallas; speaking of his phone call with Tim Tebow.
“As to the abuses I meet with, I number them among my honors. One cannot behave so as to obtain the esteem of the wise and the good without drawing on oneself at the same time the envy and malice of the foolish and wicked, and the latter is testimony of the former. The best men have always had their share of this treatment, and the more of it in proportion to their different and greater degree of merit. A man, therefore, has some reason to be ashamed of himself when he meets with none of it.” – Benjamin Franklin
