(A simple series highlighting verses from each chapter of the book of Proverbs)
Hatred stirs up conflicts, but love covers all offenses. (Proverbs 10:12 CSB)
Our natural response to an offense is defense. And how we choose to respond shows whether we have chosen love or hate.
This probably shows up most often in family relationships. You’ve witnessed it, maybe even been caught up in it. The families who get offenses right, and we all go through them, practice love.
To check how your family is doing in the “love covering offenses” category, give 1 Corinthians 13 a read. Then choose love.
