“Rejoice not when thine enemy falleth, and let not thine heart be glad when he stumbleth.” (Proverbs 24:17)
Fellow disciples, our acceptance and practice of this verse is an excellent indication of our level of maturity in Christ.
To begin with, let’s make this distinction: An unsaved person, because of their unchanged human nature, will continually hate their enemies. A mature disciple, however, will love their enemies. (Matthew 5:44)
