This is Love Forgets Wrongs - Day 8
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.
LOVE KEEPS NO RECORD OF WRONGS!
You know that list we keep tucked away in our memories so as to protect our heart? Well, that's not love. Love keeps no record of when it is wronged. This doesn't mean you stay in an abusive relationship and call it forgiveness. It is much deeper than that.
Love isn't petty, digging up old pains, hurts, and scars when the other person thought it was long forgotten. You might say that love is forgetful, but only forgets the bad. Maybe that's why long-term marriages often include two people telling of only the wonderful days of their lives together. They have kept no record of the wrongs!
