No matter what the past situation, we must never gloat over the misfortune of anyone. Even David, who was being pursued by Saul who wanted him dead, did not gloat over Saul’s death. Proverbs 24:17-18 says, 17 Do not gloat when your enemy falls; when he stumbles, do not let your heart rejoice, 18 or the Lord will see and disapprove and turn his wrath away from him. If we gloat at another’s misfortune, we are inviting the wrath back on ourselves. Instead we should lift, even our enemies, up in prayer that God will show mercy on them. No one is perfect, including ourselves and God’s grace is bigger than any sin.
