God bless our Military and their good work to defend and protect us. A job well done however does not necessarily make it a day of celebration. I don’t believe that the Lord rejoices in the death of the wicked. Neither should we. I mourn the death of Osama who most likely died without the Savior. For in doing so he is forever lost.
Christian brothers and sisters, we are called to love our enemies. They and many in the world are watching our responses. Let’s overcome and displace evil with good rather than celebrate the death of another.
This scripture comes to my mind: 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
To not take up satan’s offer to gloat in the presence of someone else’s downfall is wisdom and a good allegiance of faith. It says, “I surrender my will to God on this occasion.”
