In this last message in a series on 1 Corinthians 13 we think about the words, love "does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth.” Rejoicing in wrongdoing is most likely talking about rejoicing when someone else falls. Rejoicing in wrongdoing then – by gossiping, slandering or secretly celebrating someones wrongdoing – reveals an unloving, vengeful & twisted heart & therefore our deep need to be filled withe the love of Christ. Such love is never on a mission to spill the beans on someone because it “always protects.” Such love never celebrates another’s falling into sin because it covers a multitude of sins. Such ‘love is not gladdened when someone else falls’ becasue it is too busy celebrating the gospel which can redeem people from the fall.
Reading: 1 Corinthians 13:4-7; Luke 7:36-50
