Love Does Not...


Love does not rejoice in iniquity” (1 Corinthians 13:6). What is the application? Great care should be given to avoid triumphing in the sins of others.

Many times what we hear of another’s sinful conduct is mostly gossip. Even if the report is true, it should never be taken with delight. If we rejoice in someone else’s sin, then we do not love the person.

Sin has never been a laughing matter, and love is what motivates us to help pick up those who have fallen. Place yourself in the position of one whose sin has been devastating. Would you rather someone first be quick to help you or be glad they told someone else what you did?
