S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
1 Peter 4:8
Most important of all, continue to show deep love for each other, for love covers a multitude of sins.
The words of St. Peter, written about 2,000 years ago, still ring clear today. Of course he was speaking to “Followers of Jesus” when he said … “Love each other deeply. Because love covers a ton of sin.”
The kind of love spoken of here is a love rooted in decision. The decision that says, “I love you no matter what.” I love you in spite of. I love you. When the issue is decided in one’s heart to love people unconditionally, and then people hurt you, abuse you, spitefully use you, trash talk you, or steal from you, the decision has already been made on your part. The decision is: I am a “Follower of Jesus.” If I take a blow from someone it will be a blow for the sake of Christ. I will move in love. I love you deeply. People are my heart. I am passionate for people. I want people to know my savior, so I will operate in love. Love looks better on me than hate, bitterness, or anger ever could. And whatever decision you make toward me is inconsequential, because … “Love Looks Nice On You.”
With Your help this AM, I will love people deeply. When they fail, I’ll see love covering them. I know that “Love Looks Nice On Them.” Amen
