Love Refuses to Keep Score

“Love …. does not take into account a wrong suffered.” …I Corinthians 13: 4-5 (NASB)

Have you ever been hurt or wronged by someone?

What a question.

We all have been disappointed and hurt by the mistakes of others.

And so has God.

Sometimes that is weird to think, but God has feelings too. He too feels hurt when we make mistakes.

But God is so loving, and is so good, and is so merciful, and is so quick to forgive.
