Have you ever made decisions about your relationships based on your feelings instead of the facts? When it comes to love, feelings rule the day. Emotions guide the ship.
Ever wish you had a DNA test for love? Paul offers us one, “Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth” (1 Corinthians 13:6). In this verse lies a test for love. Love doesn’t ask someone to do what is wrong. If you find yourself prompting evil in others, heed the alarm. And if others prompt evil in you, be alert. That siren you hear? It’s the phony-love detector.
Love doesn’t tear down the convictions of others. Quite the contrary. “Love builds up!” (1 Corinthians 8:1). Ask yourself this: Do I encourage this person to do what is right? For true love “takes no pleasure in other people’s sins but delights in the truth.”
