Love Keeps No Record

Ever say to someone you love “you do that all the time” or something similar in anger? I do. I say I love these people (often it’s my wife and I know I love her) and yet I keep a record of their wrongs [bad things I think they have done to me or somehow adversely affect me]. If God were to do that to me as a Christian and I had no blood of Jesus to cover my sin, I would be in serious trouble. No way could I make up for the things I have done and have any hope of getting to heaven. God, whose grace is unbelievable and whose love knows no bounds, keeps no record. How do I know this? How dare I speak for God? I know because He has revealed this to us in His Word: Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. – 1 Corinthians 13:4-5 (NLT).
