March 20

And above all things have fervent love for one another, for "love will cover a multitude of sins."
1 Peter 4:8

It makes you wonder why the term “love will cover a multitude of sins” is put in there. But in everyday life we see where reality takes place. We are going to be hurt by many people and in return we will hurt many people, but when we love them it makes it easier to forgive. We have to have that fervent love, that true, sincere, intensely felt love so it will make it easier to forgive. Life is going to hand you some hard knocks and sometimes it is from those you love but we must remember to forgive and to continue to love. Think of what we did to Christ, we put him on the cross, yet He still loved us enough to die for us. We may not like a person, but God says to love them.
