It came from that movie... remember Birdy...
essentially about marriage.. but I feel it has to do with all of our relationships and how we perceive what we have to do in maintaining. I much prefer... the verse which speaks of 'passing over'/ verse to follow...
it is necessary to turn a blind eye to some failings to keep a relationship alive.
19:11 The discretion of a man deferreth his anger; and it is his glory
... With wisdom, understanding, and knowledge from God any can defer anger! Wow! ... Remembering 'we' need to be able to "pass over a transgression" to not get burnt ourselves. Life has a way of bringing us through many experiences... so we learn how to love well. (We don't passover just to prevent our burning... but so that, none of us is to become or taken to a state of being where the hurt defers or takes any off the course that God wants established. Scripturally it's stated we all fall short of the glory of God for a reason, to remind us to be gracious in this, as we all can offend even in silence! None of us is exempt from offending. Some take offense into the farthest realms, with some there is no ease in creations of amending as some hearts go beyond the extremes in holding resentments. Better to learn how to "Pass over" as I see it from the get go!
WE can overlook many indiscretions.. if we choose to... we grow in wisdom, as we learn how to become
'counted' (numbered) as those who bless all men!
I know I have strayed from the question in a way... however, this seems to gather us more towards what is needed in this life to guarantee safe passage home... to all that matters... our LORD.
