1 Peter 4

Verse 8 says “And above all things have fervent love for one another, for “love will cover a multitude of sins.””

‭‭Now look at the Amplified Version: “Above all things have intense and unfailing love for one another, for love covers a multitude of sins [forgives and disregards the offenses of others]."

Forgives and disregards! Wow!  That’s something we have to work at, but the Lord expects it!!   My mentor, Pastor Hilley, always said. “I choose to remember the good things and forget the bad.”  

Proverbs 10:12 says “But love covers all sins.”  Walking in love requires us to cover (conceal or hide) our fellow Christians' sins and faults at times. I say "at times" because there will be times that we must confront. There is a balance to this, but let’s keep it in perspective., There will be plenty of irritations and mistakes made by people.  We must choose to overlook most of the stuff that comes our way.

Let’s pray today for more patience and understanding with our brothers and sisters in the Lord!
