Have you ever been betrayed by a friend? It’s pretty rough. The hardest part, for me, is deciding what to do about it.
Do I confront them?
I am well experienced in this. Not in the usual teenager way. But actual betrayal by friends. And I have learned that it doesn’t matter what they do. What matters is what I do. My response is my responsibility.
So, despite what they do, I have to choose to do the right thing. No matter what.
In this state of mind, the answer to the original question is simple. I don’t have to trust my friend. But I do have to trust God.
And God says that being a friend is not easy. But not much of what He asks is. Simple, but not easy. And thus, if you ever betrayed by a friend. Don’t turn your back on them because they hurt you. Instead, show them grace and mercy. YOU be faithful. No matter what.
Simple not easy.
Well, that’s all for now. I hope you gleaned something from this.
