“Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path”

(Psalm 119:105)

GOD ERASES ALL WRONGS

BIBLE TEXT (1 Corinthians 13: 5) AND VERSIONS

* LOVE keeps no record of wrongs [New International Version = NIV]

* LOVE doesn’t keep score of the sins of others [Messenger = MSG]

* LOVE keeps no record of being wronged [New Life Translation = NLT]

COMMENTARY

GOD’S LOVE KEEPS NO RECORD

Such love will NEVER motivate any of us to say. “I will never forgive you as long as I live.” Or, “I will forgive you but I will never forget.” Or, “I remember what you did ...I will never ever forget what you did to me!”

GOD’S LOVE KEEPS NO SCORE

Such love NEVER keeps scores – a sort of score-sheet a record of the wrongs committed by others – especially the sins that others have committed against us. Keeping such a record – materially or mentally – is actually self-righteous. In effect it is saying to God, ‘look at how better I am!’

GOD’S LOVE ERASES TOTALLY

Such love ALWAYS erases all wrongs. Biblical love erases totally all sins made against us. Biblical love cancels the wrongdoing of others against us or against those we know and love. Biblical love erases the sins of others from our vengeful list. Biblical love does not merely cover over sins but erases sins – and does so fully or totally and forever! How about us?

FORCEFUL FOCUS

God’s Love is Virtue Supreme

COMMITMENT CHALLENGE FOR TODAY

Seek out someone who once grieved you and tell them you have forgiven them
