Proverbs 17:9 (KJV): He that covereth a transgression seeketh love; but he that repeateth a matter separateth [very] friends.
Reflection on God’s Word for Today - 28 Oct 2023
It is not uncommon to see those who are not in Christ going about broadcasting how they have been wronged. Sadly this is also seen with those who follow Christ and this is wrong. Followers of Christ are measured by a more stringent yardstick because God has given them the capacity to love others as God loves them. And the Bible says that God's kind of love covers a multitude of sins. That's the love that makes God to adopt us as children, though we don't deserve it. So God's expectation is that you forgive offenses against you rather than going about broadcasting it and badmouthing the offender. How are you conforming with this? Do you need to reform your ways?
Pray: Father, I have fallen short of Your expectation of me, please forgive me and give me grace to love as You do. #Mok
