1 Peter 4:8 (ESV) Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins.As we finished painting the wall, I was amazed at how good it looked! The paint had covered almost all of the cracks and holes left by a lifetime of being let go but the new paint made all things look new! Today's verse shares about loving covering a multitude of sins, let that sink in! In life, we will have cracks and holes left by relationships that have gone bad, but if we allow the love of Christ to rule in our lives, we can allow love to begin to fill in those cracks and holes. The key of course is whether or not we allow the newness of Christ, the love of Christ to be our "paint" towards others. Sometimes we need to paint Him on and allow for the paint to dry to see the work of the new paint. Let's let God be our paint and we be His Brush as we do this thing called life, we may just paint a masterpiece! peace, tom
