It’s Good to Cover Wrongs – Proverbs 10:12

Welcome to Scriptures for Life with Taking time to focus on the Father’s way.

Proverbs 10:12
Hatred stirs up dissension, but love covers over all wrongs.

Well, can it get any simpler than that? Hatred arouses strife. It brings up emotions that can be difficult to control. Yet, love covers over all wrongs.

It’s kind of funny. Everybody wants that love when they are the offenders but they don’t want to think about it when they are the ones who were offended. We want the forgiveness but we struggle with forgiving. Yet, just as we want to be forgiven, we have to realize that others have that same desire when they do wrong.

So just as we want others to treat us, we should treat them. Yeshua made it clear…

Matthew 7:12
So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.

Walking in love is easy when love is being shown to you. It’s a little more difficult when it feels it’s not being given in return. Even then, however, the choice is left to us. To love or hate.

1 Peter 4:8
Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.

Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until next time, Shalom.
