Wesley's Notes for 1 Corinthians 13:6


13:6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity - Yea, weeps at either the sin or folly of even an enemy; takes no pleasure in hearing or in repeating it, but desires it may be forgotten for ever. But rejoiceth in the truth - Bringing forth its proper fruit, holiness of heart and life. Good in general is its glory and joy, wherever diffused in all the world.


People's Bible Notes for 1 Corinthians 13:6


1Co 13:6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity. Instead of rejoicing, is filled with sadness by wrong doing of any kind, but does rejoiceth in the truth, or, as in the Revised Version, "with the truth" in its triumphs.

    God is love. If you don't have love you don't know God, you have not the spirit. His love is truly unconditional. He is unchanging. Who knows the mind of God? Who can council him? He is our father our creator. He took his time creating us. does not a craftsman love his work. takes care of it, is mindful of it. even the angels wonder! I can go all day....My mother truly gave me that name
