There is a special relationship between all sincere believers with good matureness.
We must intensely and fervently love each other because love covers a multitude of sins.
It inclines us to forgive and forget offenses, rather than get mad and spread gossip or seek revenge.
The scripture teaches us to show mercy for others, forgive and continue to love them just as God whom first loved us, has shown mercy and forgiven us of our own sins.
We love because He first loved us. -1 John 4:9
