BE PATIENT WITH ALL

 

Colossians 3:12-13 (ESV)

12 Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, 13 bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive.

 

1 Thessalonians 5:14 (AMP)

14 We [earnestly] urge you, believers, admonish those who are out of line [the undisciplined, the unruly, the disorderly], encourage the timid [who lack spiritual courage], help the [spiritually] weak, be very patient with everyone [always controlling your temper].

 

1 Thessalonians 5:14-15 (MSG)

13-15 Get along among yourselves, each of you doing your part. Our counsel is that you warn the freeloaders to get a move on. Gently encourage the stragglers, and reach out for the exhausted, pulling them to their feet. Be patient with each person, attentive to individual needs. And be careful that when you get on each other’s nerves you don’t snap at each other. Look for the best in each other, and always do your best to bring it out.

 

LOVE COVERS ALL TRANSGRESSIONS

 

Proverbs 10:12 (ESV)

12 Hatred stirs up strife, but love covers all offenses.

 

Proverbs 10:12 Amplified Bible (AMP)

12 Hatred stirs up strife, But love covers and overwhelms all transgressions [forgiving and overlooking another’s faults].

 

Ephesians 4:32 (ESV)

32 Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.

 

 

LOVE CONCEALS AN OFFENSE

 

Proverbs 17:9 (ESV)

Whoever covers an offense seeks love,

but he who repeats a matter separates close friends.

 

Proverbs 17:9 Amplified Bible (AMP)

He who covers and forgives an offense seeks love, But he who repeats or gossips about a matter separates intimate friends.

 

1 Thessalonians 5:14-15 (MSG)

13-15 Get along among yourselves, each of you doing your part. Our counsel is that you warn the freeloaders to get a move on. Gently encourage the stragglers, and reach out for the exhausted, pulling them to their feet. Be patient with each person, attentive to individual needs. And be careful that when you get on each other’s nerves you don’t snap at each other. Look for the best in each other, and always do your best to bring it out.
