Today we see how times have changed and continue to change, this happens because of the disobedience of man, where he has completely forgotten God, and if we see this Bible verse we will realize that it is true:
12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
Mateo 24: 12-13
These verses explains to us what is happening in this perverse world, how the love of many has cooled down in a great way, that we observe the events that happen every day: People take the life of the other for nothing, commit murder and suicide, and this really happens when we turn away from God totally. If we are far away from Him then the evil one comes and takes power from our lives, to do whatever he wants and finish us and with those who remain around us.
In 1 Peter 4: 8 the author tells us clearly what we should do and what we should have:
And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins.
1 Peter 4:8
Here he is telling us that we must have fervent love; because love will cover a multitude of sins, and this is what the human being has not wanted to understand, that God offers everything. And that only in Him is true love, because the Word is clear and sharper than a double-edged sword. One of the most important commandments in the Scriptures is love of neighbor. The Lord tells us: You will love your neighbor as yourself.
But the human being is walking on roads of perdition committing all kinds of atrocities, regardless of the damage they can cause to others. But something clear that we must have is that if we repent of heart God forgives us, and this is where the Bible refers to that love will cover a multitude of sin.
Concluding this article, it is good that we take into account what the Lord is telling us here in this Biblical reading, and that it is good that we read and analyze what we are doing wrong and that we stop, and reflect that only Christ can give us the true love.
