This week I came across a number of verses that spoke to me about the power of love and of how truly loving others means showing mercy & giving grace whenever possible.
Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins. – 1 Peter 4:8 (NIV)
Whoever would foster love covers over an offense, but whoever repeats the matter separates close friends – Proverbs 17:9 (NIV)
Without wood a fire goes out; without a gossip a quarrel dies down. – Proverbs 26:30 (NIV)
A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed. – Proverbs 11:25 (NIV)
“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. – John 13:34 (NIV)
