If we want to show others we care, we must accept the offenses and mistakes done against us. The way we do that is easy; we prioritize loving others over justifying ourselves.

Whoever would foster love covers over an offense,

but whoever repeats the matter separates close friends.

Proverbs 17:9 (niv)

Bringing up past offenses and insisting on being given our due is not the Christian way. We are to help one another by extending the grace extended to us in God’s love.

Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.

1 Peter 4:8
