In View of Sunday’s Night’s Breaking News…

In view of what Americans are learning tonight about the killing of America’s #1 most wanted enemy, and in view of the uproar that’s sure to ensue…

I hear the call of Micah 6:8:

“He has shown you, o mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.”

I want my heart to hope that all people, from the most respected to the most criminal, come to know God’s mercy. For we all deserve judgment.

And also remember…

Proverbs 24:17 “Rejoice not when thine enemy falleth, and let not thine heart be glad when he is overthrown.”
