"But They Really Hurt Me!"
Reference: Proverbs 10:12 Hatred stirs up dissension, but love covers over all wrongs.
On the other hand there might be, at times, an even better approach. Sometimes when people do offensive things to us, we might be able to love them and let it go. Notice that it doesn’t say that you simply forget the wrong, but that we cover it. It’s not right to say, “It’s no big deal, I’m not going to confront them. I’ll overlook it this time out of love” and then tell others about what they have done. To cover it is to protect their reputation, to not talk about the offense and to truly let it go in our hearts--as if it never happened.
Love wants others to think the best of the person who has wronged us, not the worst.
