Aim the spotlight at the solution, not the problem

Above all things have intense and unfailing love for one another, for love covers a multitude of sins [forgives and disregards the offenses of others].  I Pet. 4:8 (Amplified)

Just as God’s love is the driving force for forgiving, reconciling, and restoring us, our love for one another is the force for restoration and reconciliation within the church. When we choose where focus our attention, too often sin and behavior gets the spotlight. What would happen if we aimed our attention spotlights on love instead?

Lord, help me to pay more attention to love than I do to offenses and failures.
