Proverbs 10:12

 
Hatred stirs up strife, But love covers all sins.
Proverbs 10:12

What a powerful contrast this small proverb presents when you really put some thought into it. For example, if you look at the political arena right now, you see nothing but hate for the other side. How unbelievable would it look if hate were shunned by the radical action of love? I might actually want to look at my Facebook feed if that were the case.

Love is an amazing concept because it goes beyond just mere feelings and emotions. Love is so powerful that is has the ability to cover sin! This was no better displayed than Jesus on the cross as He cried out to the Father, "Forgive them for they know not what they do," referring to the very people that were spitting on Him as He hung on the cross for them.

Remember, today, the God we serve is not just a loving God, but He is love and the love that He is, is the very same love that resides in us now. And while hate is the natural, easiest option to take, we now have the power to extend God's love to others by choosing to do so, as Jesus chose to do for us, and as a result, turned our scarlet-stained sins into a fresh covering of pure white snow.
