VerseD: 1 Peter 4:8

Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins.

If you are focused on how to love others like God does, you will not condone sin but you will stop focusing on their sin and love on them.

VerseD: 1 Corinthians 13:4-5

Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful;
1 Corinthians 13:4‭-‬5, ESV

Love is so much more than a feeling. It is a choice and an action. Our feelings can help us be patient and kind, but it is the power of the Gospel by the Holy Spirit that truly makes it possible.

Through these, we can be like Jesus who endured mocking and beatings to bring us joy.
