Do not rejoice when your enemy falls, and do not let your heart be glad when he stumbles, lest the Lord see it and be displeased, and He turn His anger away from him.
We live in a world where people are filled with anger, unforgiveness, and the need for revenge. A world that hopes bad things will happen to their enemies. It should never be this way for the people of God, but sometimes it is that way. Revenge belongs only to the Lord. When we take it, we are stealing it from Him. We can never know what the Lord is doing in their lives, so let's be careful about our emotions. Jesus taught us to pray for our enemies, and pray for blessings, not curses.
