I rejoice
2 Corinthians 7:6
But God, who comforts the humble, comforted us by the coming of Titus,

19
After I returned, I repented; After I was instructed, I struck my thigh [in grief]. I was ashamed and humiliated because I bore the disgrace of my youth.
20
Isn't Ephraim a precious son to Me, a delightful child? Whenever I speak against him, I certainly still think about him. Therefore, My inner being yearns for him; I will truly have compassion on him. [This is] the LORD's declaration.
Zechariah 12:10

When he came to his senses, he said, 'How many of my father's hired hands have more than enough food, and here I am dying of hunger!
18
I'll get up, go to my father, and say to him, Father, I have sinned against heaven and in your sight.
19
I'm no longer worthy to be called your son. Make me like one of your hired hands.'
20
So he got up and went to his father. But while the son was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion. He ran, threw his arms around his neck, and kissed him.
21
The son said to him, 'Father, I have sinned against heaven and in your sight. I'm no longer worthy to be called your son.'
22
"But the father told his slaves, 'Quick! Bring out the best robe and put it on him; put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet.
23
Then bring the fattened calf and slaughter it, and let's celebrate with a feast,
24
because this son of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found!' So they began to celebrate.
Luke 15:32-24

2 Corinthians 1:12

To some we are a scent of death leading to death, but to others, a scent of life leading to life. And who is competent for this?
2 Corinthians 10:8-10
8
For if I boast some more about our authority, which the Lord gave for building you up and not for tearing you down, I am not ashamed.
9
I don't want to seem as though I am trying to terrify you with my letters.
10
For it is said, "His letters are weighty and powerful, but his physical presence is weak, and his public speaking is despicable."
2 Corinthians 13:8-10
8
For we are not able to do anything against the truth, but only for the truth.
9

Isaiah 6:9-11
9
