    Become imitators of God, as beloved children, and go on walking in love, just as the Christ also loved us and gave himself for us.Eph. 5:1, 2.

    Some Christians who have committed a serious sin try to cover it over in order to avoid embarrassing themselves or disappointing others.

    (Prov. 28:13)


    Yet, such a course is unloving, for it harms not only the sinner but also others. It can hinder the flow of God’s spirit and threaten the peace of the entire congregation. (Eph. 4:30) Genuine love moves Christians who have committed serious sins to speak to the elders so that the elders can provide the needed help. (Jas. 5:14, 15)

    Love is the greatest of all qualities. (1 Cor. 13:13) It identifies us as Jesus’ followers and as imitators of Jehovah, the Source of love. “If I . . . do not have love,” wrote Paul, “I am nothing.” (1 Cor. 13:2) May we continue to show our love not just “in word” but also “in deed and truth.”1 John 3:18.
