Week 24 of 52

“ {Charity} Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;” 1 Corinthians 13: 6

LOVE DOES NOT REJOICE IN UNRIGHTEOUSNESS, even when it seems like a misfortune was exactly what another person deserved. Love mourns over sin, its effects, and the pain which results from living in a fallen world. Love seeks to reconcile others with the Lord.

LOVE REJOICES WITH THE TRUTH, even when it is easier and more profitable materially to lie. Love is joyful when truth is known, even when it may lead to adverse circumstances, reviling, or persecution
(BCF, Self-Confrontation page 218)

Enjoy serving the Lord, and he will give you what you want. Wait and trust the Lord. Don't be upset when others get rich or when someone else's plans succeed. Don't get angry. Don't be upset; it only leads to trouble. Evil people will be sent away, but those who trust the Lord will inherit the land. Psalms 37:4, 7-9
