Quote For The Day

I read this in my devotion book last night. I desperately needed it:

Do not be disquieted about your faults. Love without ceasing and much will be forgiven you, because you have loved much. Faults perceived in peace, in the spirit of love, are immediately consumed by love itself; but faults perceived in a pettish fit of self-loved disturb peace, interrupt the presence of God, and the exercise of perfect love. Vexation of a fault is generally more at fault than the fault itself. ~ Francious De La Mothe Fenelon

Most important of all, continue to show deep love for each other, for love covers a multitude of sins. ~1Pet 4:8

Sometimes words cannot express how grateful I am that the greatest commandment is to love.

That is a really good quote and timely for me as well. Thanks for sharing. Would you mind sharing what devotional that is from? It sounds like a devotional with a little more depth that most!

Hi Tawny, the emphasis on loving without ceasing is inspiring, thanks for posting it. The idea of love 'covering' is beautiful. God bless.
