โ€ญโ€ญ1 Peterโ€ฌ โ€ญ4:8โ€ฌ


The Apostle Peter isnโ€™t saying that many of my sins are forgiven because I love, or that doing things motivated by love makes up for the fact that I do the wrong thing. He is saying that if we earnestly love one another we will overlook each othersโ€™ shortcomings and forgive one another.


Our sins are forgiven by God because they are covered by the blood of Jesus. We forgive each other because our sins are covered by the love we share for one another. Love covers a multitude of sins.


A family goes forward on mutual forgiveness. The day we stop forgiving one another, everything grinds to a halt. Marriages end. Brothers and sisters, parents and children; all these relationships depend on love, expressed in forgiveness, in order to continue.


So it is in a Church, too. The day we stop forgiving one another it all falls apart, because there is always something that needs to be forgiven. There will always be someone who will say or do something that others will have to overlook, if we are going to move forward.


Are you having trouble forgiving some one? Cheer up; next week it will be someone else needing to forgive you! The good news is that love covers a multitude of sins, and the love of God has been shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Spirit, who was given to us.
