I spent time in the early chapters of Genesis this morning. And this brief account of Ham, youngest son of Noah, clarified the definition of love.
"Love covers all sins." (Proverbs 10:12)
Just as the older brothers guarded their own eyes and covered their father's nakedness with a garment, so are we to cover the sins of those walking at our side. So are we empowered to be an aid in their healing, rather than a hindrance. Rather than expose.
Father, use me to build up, sharpen, and encourage, rather than tear down.
