Advancing Ourselves by Advancing Others

Here’s a great read that’s well said and thought-provoking. Warning: If you don’t like your thoughts “provoked”, maybe you shouldn’t read it…

I love the Psalms

Reading:                                      Psalm 35

(Verses 26-28)
May all who gloat over my distress
be put to shame and confusion;
may all who exalt themselves over me
be clothed with shame and disgrace.
May those who delight in my vindication
shout for joy and gladness;
may they always say, “The L
ORD be exalted,
who delights in the well-being of his servant.”
My tongue will proclaim your righteousness,
your praises all day long
(NIV).

Reflection
Psalm 35 draws to a close with this warning against schadenfreude: May all who gloat over my distress be put to shame and confusion; may all who exalt themselves over me be clothed with shame and disgrace.
