GOD PAUSE: Of all the things that Solomon could have asked from God, he wanted wisdom. And the book of Proverbs is just one example of God's answer to his prayer. Just a few minutes ago, I was reading about how love works in our relationships. Proverbs 17:9 says “Love overlooks the mistakes of others, but dwelling on the failures of others devastates friendships.” How powerful is that, right? I don't know about you, but I can have a tendency to hold a grudge or keep bringing up how someone has messed up in a big way. Fact is, if I see a relationship that has gone south, I need to look at my end first. So I need God's help --- a lot. Dear Papa, help me to walk in Your love. It will cover over the mistakes of others and also to live as though they didn't happen. Amen.
