Love allowances

Always be humble and gentle. Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other’s faults because of your love. Make every effort to keep yourselves united in the Spirit, binding yourselves together with peace. Eph. 4:2-3

Love motivates the allowance we make for one another’s faults. We may not all agree theologically; ethics and social practices may vary; but love unites us in the Spirit. The love of God is greater than our differences and our faults.

Lord, just as nothing separates me from Your love, let nothing separate me from loving other followers of Christ.
