1 Peter 4:8 8 Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins. (NIV)

We are so very quick to judge, criticize, condemn and gossip about.  We even gossip in the guize of prayer for others.  God tells us to love others deeply.  When we love someone, we overlook their faults, dwelling on the positive things that attracted us to them in the first place.  Many say love is blind to the bad.  To love someone deeply is to want the best for that person.  Love means we encourage them and we speak well of them.  When we pray for others, we don’t need to bring up all their ”dirty laundry.”  We can lift the up with others before the throne of grace of God for God knows best what they need.  Let us quick trying to make ourselves feel good and look good to others by bringing up the faults of others.  Let us please God by praising and encouraging one another.  Let us speak and pray for God’s best for one another.  Let us love each other deeply.
