In every situation of Trust there is always the risk of betrayal. Whether it is a friendship, a business partnership, a marriage or whatever; in every circumstance where two or more people trust each other there is always the risk that someone will betray that trust.
We all know about the greatest betrayal ever – Judas betraying Jesus with a kiss.
So what are we to do? Not trust anyone ever and go through life suspecting everyone. This would be impossible and would jeopardize our every relationship.
We have to accept that with trust we become a little more vulnerable and susceptible to abuse of that trust. It’s a risk we take as we journey through life.
With one important exception:
“Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me.” John 14:1 NIV.
