Never interrupt when your enemy is making a mistake

Do you agree with Napoleon Bonaparte? As a christian its hard to practice this. I believe in karma, so I know that when I have bad intentions for my fellowmen, it will come back to me a hundredfold. But sometimes I am so much tempted to practice this. Pity always get me, ending up correcting this person before he messes up again. Am i too weak or just a kind-hearted creature, wanting peace on earth?

You are the only person who can know why you are correcting other people. Perhaps you like to correct other, perhaps you like to show off, perhaps you like to show the (according to you) right way, perhaps you like to be a saviour? I don't believe that believing in karma has anything to do with your believe that if you have bad intentions for your fellowman it comes back to you a hundredfold. Witches believe in that, christians etc too. It makes me wonder why people only believe it will come back to you if you have bad intentions.. and who says it's bad intention? What is bad in the eyes of one person doesn't have to be bad in the eyes of someone else. Who is making the rules? There is nothing wrong with correting someone, show him/her the way, a solution or whatever. The other person is free to accept it or leave it. I do believe what Napoleon B. said is right.. you should never interrupt when your enemy is making a mistake. That person won't allow or believe you anyway, if you do so he will just try to break you more.

Well everyone has their opinion on this. And every opinion is welcome. Its not that I am a show off or anything, my conscience just say that it's not good to person be just watch a person get into trouble when in fact we can do something about it. What we sow, we reap right? I don't want to reap the same.
