Don't be a Ham

Love covers sin.
I've been thinking about that a lot lately.
When someone in the Body of Christ sins we have two choices: we can be like Shem and Japheth or we can be like Ham.
Remember the story, Noah got drunk and passed out in the nude. Ham saw it, laughed and then exposed his father's shame to his brothers. Shem and Japheth got up, took a robe across their shoulders and walked backwards until the robe completely covered their father's nakedness. And they purposely turned their faces away from him.
Shem and Japheth choose to honour who their father was and not berate what he did.
That's what I desire to be like.
