The Qualities of Love, Lesson 10
True Love Rejoices in the Truth!
1 Corinthians 13:4-7, “Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things” NKJV
“Rejoice”-chairo to be cheerful, glad, gleeful, happy.
“Iniquity”-adikia- injustice (in a legal sense), immoral or wrong behavior (in a personal sense.)
Alfred Barnes, “it is only as the heart is subdued by the gospel, and filled with God’s love, that it is made to rejoice when all people do well.”
