A sinister side of the human heart secretly rejoices when bad happens to another — and worst case is when it happens to your spouse.
The is the opposite of envy, which angers over another’s blessing. It must rank up there with Hitler’s concentrated evil. The Bible says that married couples are one flesh, and you are mistaken to think that means only the physical union. It’s also emotional and spiritual.
So when good happens to your spouse, it happens to you. When bad happens, bad happens to you too. You are one flesh. Expel such rejoicing from your evil heart.
1 Cor. 13:6 says: Love does not delight in evil.
