True Wisdom

I had a great conversation with my brother Bil the other day.  As usual, we each gave the other a lot of stuff to think about.  Here's one gem:

He believes that the mark of true wisdom is that it engenders tolerance.  So God, who is all wisdom, is full of vast tolerance toward us.  In other words, as we try and try again to discern the will of God, God is continually saying to us, "Well that's not quite what I meant but, okay, we can work with that."

That rings true with my experience of God.   I think it likely that St. Peter would also agree.
