Making allowances

Ephesians 4:2 Amplified says, “Living as becomes you with complete lowliness of mind (humility) and meekness (unselfishness, gentleness, mildness), with patience, bearing with one another and making allowances because you love one another.”

Speaking of love in I Corinthians 13:5 the Amplified says, “….it takes no account of the evil done to it (it pays no attention to a suffered wrong).”

Making allowances: letting go of wrongs done, in order to maintain a right relationship.
