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.

    I love that verse I am still learning about being a child of God and making things right for my family and myself. It has not been easy but very humbling. My family is everything to me and with the guidence of God myself and my family will be whole. And I will be good enough for the kingdom. I haven't been honest and very loving in times of need. I pray for my family and beg for forgiveness.
