1Corinthians 13:4-8 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. . It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. . Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails (The Holy Bible, New International Version)

Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. I was driving down a road being tailgated by someone. They couldn’t wait to pass even though I was going the maximum speed limit. They finally passed even though it was in an area were passing wasn’t allowed. As a rounded a curve I saw this driver pulled over with a sheriff’s car behind him. I laughed. I took delight in this driver’s being caught, not so much because it might be preventing an accident but because I delighted in seeing the driver getting into trouble. Later I asked God’s forgiveness for my attitude. As humans we tend to be attracted to evil. We see evil as fun and self-indulging. Truth and love are linked together. Love is truth. We cannot love in deceit. Our question is what gives us delight? Why do we want truth to win out over evil? We each need to take some time to meditate on this.
