It’s almost here…that day many singles dread! You know the one – it whispers to you…you’re still single.
While there are many singles who would rather forgo the day all together and those who have even gone so far as to rename it with an acronym; S.A.D. It is important to focus on the meaning of the day, love.
If you have ever attended a wedding you have heard the scripture in 1st Corinthians 13 love is; and many of us have heard these so often that we mouth them each time we hear them.
But there are a multitude of scriptures about love. One in particular that we often overlook is; love covers. If we think of love in this way, we might see it for what it truly is: a covering, covering by God of our sin.
His blood the ultimate covering, on doorposts, on our hearts...
A covering of our faults and indiscretions by friends, family, rather than an announcement of our mistakes. A covering that desires to see us make better choices, mend fences.
Love is a covering, it covers a multitude of sins.
When was the last time you chose to see love in this way? When was the last time you chose to cover someone in love?
