Love rejoices with truth
Love takes pleasure in the flowering of truth

In the unfolding of God’s word.

The flowering of truth brings joy to the heart
and light to the eyes
restoring the soul.

Psalm 119:130The unfolding of Your words gives light; It gives understanding to the simple.

Psalm 19:7-8The law of the LORD is perfect, restoring[reviving] the soul; The testimony[statues] of the LORD is sure[trustowrthy], making wise the simple. The precepts of the LORD are right, giving joy[rejoicing] to the heart. The commands of the LORD are radiant[pure], giving light to the eyes.

    The same happens when I open God’s Word. His light shines through the pages and into my heart, revealing things of which I was unaware. The sins and idols that lie hidden in dark corners of my heart are revealed beneath the bright light of God’s truth.

      And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more in knowledge and all discernment, so that you may approve the things that are excellent, in order to be *sincere and blameless until the day of Christ; being filled with the fruits of righteousness which come through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God. -Phil 1:9-11

      Sincere[1506] = pure, unsullied
      ->found pure when unfolded and examined by the sun’s light
      ->from heile (the sun’s ray) and [2919]; judged by sunlight, i.e. tested as genuine
      ->Synonym : See Definition [5840] = free from falsehood
