Proverbs 24:17-18 is clear. “Do not gloat when your enemy falls; when they stumble, do not let your heart rejoice, or the Lord will see and disapprove and turn his wrath away from them.”
Our culture loves to see celebrities or athletes or politicians we don’t care for fall and stumble morally. When they do, we celebrate and revel in their failure. This proverb reminds us that that’s not what the wise or righteous do. Rather than gloat, we should check our pride and learn the lessons being taught by their failure rather than excited and joyous for their sin.
