The fear in our world over the coronavirus spreading is leading to some pointing fingers and laying blame at those to whom blame should not be allocated. While there are times in life to stand strong in your convictions, we are told by the Apostle Paul that we must always be humble, gentle, loving, and counting others as more important than ourselves—including in those trying times in our lives. He says in Ephesians, “Always be humble and gentle. Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other’s faults because of your love.” Love doesn’t click together two perfectly shaped puzzle pieces, meant for one another. Love fills the gaps between otherwise incongruent shapes to bring them together. Today, remember that no matter how difficult the situation it will be made better for all when we show love for those around us.
“Always be humble and gentle. Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other’s faults because of your love.” — Ephesians 4:2 NLT
