Proverbs 24:17-18

Do not rejoice when your enemy falls, and do not let your heart be glad when he stumbles; lest the Lord see it, and it displease Him, and He turn away His wrath from him.
Proverbs 24:17-18

A few weeks ago, I saw a car get towed because they were parked blocking a driveway. The family did not know who they were as they were from a house down the street. Immediately, I was so happy that it was getting towed. Finally, justice! Hopefully, now no one will park on our street, blocking driveways.

Then this verse came to mind, along with the words of Jesus telling me to pray for my enemies. Love your enemies. What I learned is that I need to have compassion even for those who do wrong towards us. Remember before we were saved, we were enemies of God. Jesus could have been rejoicing every time we fall but instead He paid the price for us on the cross. Now God calls us His children.

Praying for my enemies,

Joshua Navarro
