I have been wrestling with the news this week of the shooting of Osama Bin Laden.
Friends of mine have posted two quotes that sum things up for me on their facebook pages.
"do not gloat when your enemy falls; when he stumbles, do not let your heart rejoice". Proverbs 24:17
... a facebook quote (I have had to edit because of useful comment. 'I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy... (which then goes on to quote from a 1957 sermon on loving your enimies by Martin Luther king Jr) "Returning hate for hate multiplies hate.... Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that." ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
