Sometimes love is work

Be humble and gentle. Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other’s faults because of your love. Eph.4:2

It may seem like a right to feel annoyed if someone’s faults cause inconvenience. It may even seem like extending patience and understanding when someone messes up is giving sin a pass. By making allowances we recognize how difficult it is to overcome our faults and what a huge part love and encouragement play in the process. Extending grace and patience helps us remember that none of us are perfect either.

Lord, thank you for the people who make allowances for my faults.
