With the news of Osama bin Laden’s death tonight, we would do well to consider two proverbs:
“When it goes well with the righteous, the city rejoices, And when the wicked perish, there is joyful shouting.” (Proverbs 11:10)
“Do not rejoice when your enemy falls, And do not let your heart be glad when he stumbles; or the LORD will see it and be displeased, And turn His anger away from him.” (Proverbs 24:17-18)
Don’t strut, my friends. Instead, let us pray for justice, mercy and peace.
