Behold, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.

1 John 4:11

We should learn to look at the faults of others only through loves eyes, with charity, patience, and compassion. We do not know what piercing sorrows have produced the scars which we see in people's souls. We do not know the pains and trials which make life hard to many with whom we are tempted to be impatient. If we knew all the secret burdens and the heart-wounds which many carry hidden beneath their smiling faces, we would be patient and gentle with all men.

J.R. Miller (1840-1912).

This could go right along with our sermon mostly about forgiveness but with sections talking about kindness to each other and accepting one another and bearing and that love covers a multitude of sins...
Hope you are having a nice day!
