Daily Devotional – July 21

 

I Corinthians 13:4-6 Charity suffereth long, [and] is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; rejoiceth not in iniquity

When a brother falls – even an obnoxious one – we should never entertain secret thoughts of satisfaction. Common among so many today is the rejoicing at others’ misfortune.    You would be surprised at how many Christians who delight in the fall of others.   

Since love always seeks the good of others, it can never rejoice when evil prevails.  Rejoicing in wickedness is at variance with biblical love and does not have humanity’s welfare at heart.

  1. I hope you don’t mean Clinton was the obnixious president. 🙂

  2. No, Helen, but I know many a Christian who rejoiced when he fell. Sad…

  3. Even worse are the ones who condemn Hillary because she stood by him. We are supposed to forgive spouses, right? Marriage vows and all that. 🙂 But not her, she did it for her filthy ambition. Go figure.

  4. Christians often shoot their wounded, don’t they…

  5. Hmm, this is a slippery slope here isn’t it? Judge not lest ye be judged eh?

    Brothers, if someone is caught in a sin you should restore him gently. But watch yourself or you also may be tempted.

    President Clinton brought a lot of what he got on himself. He could have been a terrific leader, if he would have led. Say what you want about Bush, right wrong or indifferent he leads. No wetting of the finger here.

    Clinton could have been that guy. He had the brains and the charisma to be one of the greatest presidents ever. He was too covered up in self. When all you care about is your legacy and what people think, nothing much comes back.

    His twelve years of self cost this country dearly i’m afraid.
