Love has an amazing affect on people.
Love is able to transform sadness to happiness; it changes loneliness into hope.
The Bible has much to say about love – how it is so patient and kind.
Hatred stirs up strife, Love covers all sins. Prov 10:12
“love will cover a multitude of sins.” 1 Peter 4:8
Love also overlooks sins.
There is a husband that’s an alcoholic but the wife loves him and makes excuses for him when he doesn’t show up with her at a party.
There’s the child doing drugs but the parents don’t want to believe that because they love her and just want to believe she’s going through a phase.
I can go on and on and this may be happening in your family. Your love is not covering their sins – it’s overlooking those sins.
You will overlook the sins of those you love!
You nor that person you love can ever, ever cover those sins.
But Jesus can because He covers those sins in forgiveness through His own blood.
Your sin isn’t overlooked or excused – it’s forgiven, washed away, removed, gone, and never to be remembered.
Abba, thank You for covering my sin. I would still be in a bad shape had you just overlooked it. In Jesus name, YES&AMEN
