Purposely being shot in the heart by your best friend. Having your mother steal your wallet. Being attacked by the person who is supposed to protect you. All these shocking actions are Betrayal.
In Matthew 26:21 Jesus said, “one of you will betray me.” These chilling words sent shock waves though the hearts of all the disciples, and pretty much ruined the rest of the dinner.
If you really want to hurt someone beyond repair, just betray them. Once betrayed, a person is harder to win back then a conquered city. The lesson in all this is, don’t betray anyone. Trust is a hard thing to build up, it may take years to do so, and one evil act like betrayal can destroy it in a second. Imagine the shock on the face of the one that is betrayed; the unbelieving stare, the tears, the question: “Why? Why? I thought you were my friend?”
Don’t do this evil deed to anyone! If you have people trust, keep it, don’t betray that trust!
Hope to hear from you or see you at the services.
