    1 Peter 4:8-11 – Layers of Love

    It is our human nature to look first for the bad in others. Somehow, it makes us feel better about ourselves. Jesus changed all that and teaches us to look first for the good in others and to love one another. I believe that by focusing on the good and love, we actually address the bad in ourselves and others because love and goodness not only covers sin, it reveals it.

    The defining trait that I want to be remembered for is faithfulness. That was actually Peter’s defining quality. He was flawed, but faithful.

    I can think of people that I have a tendency to define according to their sin or flaws. The reality is that we all sin and fall short, and we are all flawed, but Jesus does not define us by our sin and neither should we.
