  11. The Opportunity to Demean or Dignify

  12. Blessed is he who has regard for the weak; the LORD delivers him in times of trouble. The LORD will protect him and preserve his life; he will bless him in the land and not surrender him to the desire of his foes. The LORD will sustain him on his sickbed and restore him from his bed of illness. (Psalm 41:1-3)

  13. The Opportunity to Express Malice or Mercy

  14. I said, “O LORD, have mercy on me; heal me, for I have sinned against you.” My enemies say of me in malice, “When will he die and his name perish?” Whenever one comes to see me, he speaks falsely, while his heart gathers slander; then he goes out and spreads it abroad. (Psalm 41:4-6)

  15. The Opportunity to Betray or Be Loyal

  16. All my enemies whisper together against me; they imagine the worst for me, saying, “A vile disease has beset him; he will never get up from the place where he lies.” Even my close friend, whom I trusted, he who shared my bread, has lifted up his heel against me. (Psalm 41:7-9)

  17. Contrast Enemies and Friends • Enjoy your demise vs. Are devastated by your fall • Try to trip you up vs. Try to hold you up • Use information against you vs. Keep information in confidence • Emphasize and exaggerate your weaknesses vs. Understand your weaknesses and seek to mitigate them • Flattery you vs. Speak the truth in love • Expose your transgressions vs. Cover your transgressions

  18. The Opportunity to Fight Back or Embrace Grace

  19. But you, O LORD, have mercy on me; raise me up, that I may repay them. I know that you are pleased with me, for my enemy does not triumph over me. In my integrity you uphold me and set me in your presence forever. Praise be to the LORD, the God of Israel, from everlasting to everlasting. Amen and Amen. (Psalm 41:10-13)
