Do not gloat when your enemy falls

I woke up this morning and was putting my phone to charge when my dad walked into my room and told me,"Osama bin Laden is dead!". To be honest, I was surprised and had to see it for myself to believe. The American president Obama (those two names are very similar and causes confusion!!) confirmed his death and 100's of Americans were out celebrating. In some ways I understand how they must feel but a small part of me was sad because this man who killed so many did not know Love. His heart was hardened and he was seeped in so much hate, I felt sorry for him. He needed God, the real God who is called Love. And God loves us all, and that is proved in Christ who gave Himself a ransom for the ones who turned away. I wish Osama bin Laden could have repented, I wish he knew. I remember praying for him many times to repent and turn to God cause he is a powerful man and had many followers but sadly, he didn't and I have no answers. One of my facebook friends put this as his status this morning:

Proverbs 24:17 "Do not gloat when your enemy falls; when they stumble, do not let your heart rejoice."
 So, in all honesty I am not ecstatic like the millions around. The death of a man who did not know God is a sad affair.
