As long as we possess a genuine love for one another, we can have all kinds of miscues and mistakes and yet still experience much success in our relationships. Love truly covers a multitude of sins and failures. So, whether you have made mistakes in a romantic relationship, in a friendship, or in the context of evangelism and disciple-making, genuine love can cover and overcome many miscues and failures. More than that, God—the source of all human love—can overcome our mistakes!
The live-action Disney film Christopher Robin (directed by Marc Forster, Walt Disney Pictures, 2018) helps illustrate this point. In the movie, “A working-class family man, Christopher Robin, encounters his childhood friend Winnie-the-Pooh, who helps him to rediscover the joys of life” (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt4575576/). Pooh Bear causes many problems for the grown-up version of Christopher Robin in the film, but his genuine love for Christopher overcomes all obstacles and covers a multitude of mishaps.
