Rules - 1:12-13

12.  "Rejoice not when your enemy falls" (Proverbs 24:17).  What someone else experiences may well happen to you by tomorrow.  And anyone who rejoices at the misfortunes of another will not remain unpunished (Proverbs 17:5).

13.  Carry no envy or hatred against anyone.  The Lord loved you while you were His enemy, & therefore He expects you to also love your enemy for His sake.  It is but a small thing for us humans to forgive out debtors compared to what God the Almighty forgives & pardons us.  Even though you may think your enemy is not worthy of your forgiveness, the Lord Christ is certainly worthy of your doing it for His sake.
