Welcome to this week’s edition of the Five Minute Friday link-up!

Each week we gather around a single word prompt, set a timer for five minutes, and freewrite like no one’s watching.



In our Five Minute Friday Facebook group, I asked for suggestions for writing prompts for the next few months, and you guys really delivered!

This week’s suggestion comes from the dear Paola Barrera.

(And psst . . . Join the email list if you’d like an invite to the private Facebook group!)


This week’s FMF writing prompt is: COVER




When I saw this writing prompt suggestion, my mind first went to the Bible verse, “Love covers a multitude of sins” (1 Peter 4:8).

And then the conviction came.

I wish this practice came more easily and naturally to me, but it doesn’t. I take things personally. I remember. I get bitter sometimes, or resentful. I should be more quick to forgive.

I know people who exemplify this quality, and it’s so attractive and winsome. Christ-like. God-glorifying.

The times when the Holy Spirit does enable me to cover over a sin is most often when I remember just how much I have been forgiven. When I remember how extravagantly I have sinned against my God, I realize I have no right to withhold grace or mercy from anyone else.

“But for the grace of God go I . . .”

May I be quick to cover over an offense and slow to hold on to bitterness.

Thank God that His love does indeed cover over a multitude of sins.
