Wesley's Notes for Micah 7:8

Do not rejoice over the fall or failure of your neighbour or even your enemy, because his Maker is a righteous and merciful God, ready to forgive and restore him.Jesus is Lord.

if your friend or neighbor is down today, I tell you don't rejoice, for who knows tomorrow, it maybe your turn...therefore lets love each other as God loves us......

Whenever you see someone falling, just donít celebrate instead try by all means to pick him/her up even though you hate each other.

This verse gives us strength whenever we are covered with poverty, sickness, .. It helps us to move from one glory to another. It helps us to know that Satan is there as an opposition to good things the Lord our God had for us.
