Edifier du jour-1 Peter 4:7-11
The end of all things is near. Therefore be clear minded and self-controlled so that you can pray. Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins. Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling. Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God's grace in its various forms. If anyone speaks, he should do it as one speaking the very words of God. If anyone serves, he should do it with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen.
This verse strikes home as a newlywed. As Eileen and I struggle to fit into a single household, hurt feelings can result from small things, like what recipe to follow for sloppy joes. Love does cover a multitude of sins. Use that talents you have to help one another, and that aid will patch over a lot of wounds.
