Cover It with Love

"Above all, keep fervent in your love for one another, because love covers a multitude of sins."
1 Peter 4:8

Genuine Christian love -- the love that Christ exhibits -- is long suffering. It chooses to overlook an offense, rather than dwell on it and allow it to become a bone of contention. Satan would like nothing more than to cause conflict between God's children, so it is up to us to defeat his scheme by responding to others with love, even someone we don't particularly like. This is possible through the work of the Holy Spirit living within us. As we relinquish our self interests to Him, we receive in exchange the power to love the unloveable. In this God is glorified and we are satisfied.
