Love Bears

     1 Corinthians 13:7 Love bears all things... (ESV)

      What does it mean for love to bear.... The word for bear in the Greek language means to cover. Adan Clarke's Commentary on this says the following:

      Love conceals every thing that should be concealed; betrays no secret; retains the grace given; and goes on to continual increase. A person under the influence of this love never makes the sins, follies, faults, or imperfections of any man, the subject either of censure or conversation. He covers them as far as he can; and if alone privy to them, he retains the knowledge of them in his own bosom as far as he ought.

      Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins. - 1 Peter 4:8 (ESV)

      Dear Lord, Thank you
  • For those who can keep things quite
