Sunday afternoon and Monday I took on the project of repainting our living room. It hasn’t been repainted since we moved in in 1995. So, my biggest project was prepping the walls before painting. Having raised three teens in that house, there were nicks and dings are over the place. Each dent needed filled and sanded. Every gouge the same. When I pried loose the cracked plastic corners on some doorways, the steel corners under the drywall flexed and broke big chucks of drywall patch loose. It was a mess.

But I carefully removed what was loose and patched the holes. Some holes required multiple patches. Then I carefully sanded them level. Then I covered the patches with drywall primer, and finally two coats of colored paint. Today the paint has dried and you can’t even find where those former blemishes were. Its like a huge eraser swept through the room and made it new again.

Love between brothers and sisters is supposed to work like that, as well. John said, “Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.” Have you allowed brotherly love to cover the sin of another, like dried paint on a wall covers blemishes? Think about this today.
