1 Corthians 13:4-8 Love is patient, love is kind, it is not envious. Love does not brag, it is not puffed up. It is not rude, it is not self-serving, it is not easily angered or resentful, It is not glad about injustice, but rejoices in the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.  Love never ends.

Love rejoices in the truth.  What is truth?  We are told in John 1:14 “Now the Word became flesh and took up residence among us. We saw his glory – the glory of the one and only, full of grace and truth, who came from the Father.”. God is truth.  All truth is contained in God the Father, God thr Son (Jesus) and God the Holy Spirit.  Love rejoices in the truth.  That means live rejoices in God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.  When we maintain a spirit and attitude of rejoicing we fill ourselves with God’s love which produces the attributes we’ve been meditating in: patience, lack of envy, lack of bragging, lack of smugness or being puffed up about ourselves, lack of rudeness, lack of self-serving, lack of anger and resentment and not rejoicing when we see injustice, even when that injustice is against our presumed enemies.  This is quite a check list.  Without our minds, hearts and lives being emmersed in God, the truth, it is impossible for us to love.  Our question is, where is our rejoicing and what brings it forth?  Do we choose only to rejoice in God and His truth when things meet our own self-centered desires or do we choose to rejoice in our God in all things?  Once again the choice is ours.  I pray we will all choose to rejoice in our God throughout all our days regardless do what het days may hold.  He is God.  He is Truth.  He will have His way.
