1 Peter 4:8
“Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.”
In his book, Peter tells us to be alert, sober, prayerful, hospitable, generous and financially faithful to the Lord, but it is ultimately love, above all, that will keep us covered until the end.
If I truly love God and people, it is difficult to sin against God or people. Sin happens only in the moments when our love for God and people is suspended.
That’s part of how love “covers” a multitude of sins.
It prevents. It protects.
Question of the day: How has Gods love or the love of another person changed your life?
