Harold Bennett - Noah

I was thinking of the account we have in Genesis 9 where Ham, the son of Noah, came and found his father drunken.  His two sons, Shem and Japheth, took a mantle, walked backwards, and covered the nakedness of their father. That is just taking the mantle of love to cover someone else's fault because we love them and because the love of Christ is operating in our lives.

Sometimes I fear I have too much of an appetite for bad things, scandal, but the love of God makes it so we are slow to expose the wrong in the Kingdom and in others and you won't talk about it. There are times when some things have to be addressed and dealt with; we are slow but do it because of the love of Christ operating in our lives.
