The focus of todays blog is...

Love does not delight in injustice/unrighteousness but rejoices in the truth which is found in 1 Corinthians 13:6.


Love is such an amazing thing. It fills our hearts with warmth and makes us feel connected to one another. But sometimes, when love is mixed with injustice, it can lead to serious consequences. Love does not mean allowing someone to take advantage of us or treat us unfairly. 


We all have a duty to stand up for what is right and for those we love, even if that means saying no to something that doesn't sit right with us. It might seem difficult in the moment, but it will help to foster a more compassionate and equal society. If we stand up and oppose injustice whenever it is encountered, we can ensure that love continues to be a source of hope and security rather than suffering.


Let us remember, love does not delight injustice. Love inspires us to look beyond our own biases and do what is best for all. Just because we love someone does not mean that we should abusive or harmful behaviour from them . Love also means holding ourselves and others accountable to treat each other with kindness and respect, while never losing sight of the consequences that injustice can have on a person, group, or community. Even though it is difficult to recognize when something is not right, we have a duty to take action against wrong-doing.


Ultimately, it's important to remember that love does not equate to overlooking injustice. In fact, loving each other means acknowledging the difference between what is right and wrong, and doing what we can to correct those wrongs. Love isn’t about just smiling and brushing things off—it's about doing what is right and necessary to protect the ones we care about.


One of the aspects of love is that it always rejoices in truth. When we choose to be honest and truthful in our relationships, we give ourselves and those we love the opportunity to fully thrive and be authentic. Honesty may be hard sometimes, but when done from a place of love, it can strengthen relationships.


When it comes to matters of love, it’s important to keep in mind that true love does not revel in unrighteousness. That is to say, true love does not encourage bad or unethical behaviour. Instead, true love only fosters that which is good and moral.


Ultimately, loving in an unrighteous manner not only leads to feelings of guilt, shame, and regret; it also sends a message that encourages destructive behaviour. Therefore, if we want to remain faithful to our moral codes, we must prioritise a kind of love that respects righteousness and provides guidance to all involved.


Much love

Sylvia
