Praying for Failure
Question: A colleague of mine and I are both being considered for promotion to a single opening in our office. Is it proper for me to pray that he doesn't do well in his interview so that I will get the promotion? What is the right thing to do?
Answer: A Jew must always live with the perspective provided by our Talmudic Sages that "No one is capable of infringing to any degree on what Heaven has designated for another."
