To Gloat or Not To Gloat

God will go before me and will let me gloat over those who slander me. Psalm 59:10

King David knew what it was to gloat over his enemies. He seemed to be proud of his actions. He tempered his gloating in the next verses, but still couldn’t resist being able to demoralize his enemies.

There is a perverse satisfaction you get from taunting your enemy but the satisfaction is short-lived. In reality, taunting and gloating only leads to trouble, and it never helps the situation. It certainly doesn’t “win friends and influence people.”

Our tongues get us in trouble all too often. Sometimes we can say very hurtful things.

Psalm 34:13 should probably be our guideline for the tongue. Let’s let the kids tell it to us.
