Perspectives

Today's verseoftheday in my sidebar is from 1 Cor. 13:6 - "Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth." I've got some running conversations and internet interactions with folks, and it seems that "being right" is sometimes more important than "being together." This verse makes me ask myself: "are there times when I rejoice in being right about evil, more than just rejoicing in truth? is there a difference there?" On the one hand, we wouldn't "rejoice in evil" as Christians, but we will definitely claim victory when we're able to point out evil and "win the battle". Meanwhile, can we more simply embrace truth, even in the midst of evil? - so that we discern what's wrong, but the fact that something's good and right is more important than our ability to point out flaws and error?

Don't know if that makes sense, but I'm good with just chewing on it for now. What a way to spend a football-less Saturday, huh?
