Evolution - criterion: what a human being can or cannot endure

It is right that the wicked get punished, but you should still have some love for them. You must love them as creatures of God who are having trouble coming out of the darkness, and that thought enables you to tolerate them. Observe yourself: when someone you love makes mistakes, you are able to be patient and indulgent, whereas, when it is someone you don't like, even their good deeds irritate you, to the extent that you ascribe questionable motives to their behaviour. Only love can grant you patience and open your eyes to the intentions of others. And patience is also an expression of power. Strong people don't allow themselves to be shaken by the behaviour of those around them, whereas weak people can't bear anything - the slightest annoyance and they are beside themselves. You will see people get incredibly angry over such trifles! And often they are the same people who remain virtually unmoved by the monstrous injustices others have to endure. For me, what people can or cannot bear is a criterion for telling me how far they are along the path of evolution.
