Without love, we shall all hang.
Wrong is wrong and sin is sin. Neither love nor anything else can make a wrong right or a sin sinless, but love can hide sins. This Christian love is not blind to the sins and frailty of others, but neither does it require others to measure up before Christians are willing to accept them and sacrifice for their good.
Marriage can be a wonderful example of love’s ability to cover sins. We know our mate’s weaknesses better than anyone, and yet we love them, sacrifice for them, enjoy their companionship, and will quickly come to their defense if others attack their weaknesses.
Without the covering of love, relationships vanish and humans die of loneliness.
“Above all, keep fervent in your love for one another, because love covers a multitude of sins” (1 Peter 4:8).
