Friend or Foe?


As we walk through life, the Scriptures tell us to do everything we can to love one another; to care deeply for our brothers and sisters in the Lord.  I’ve tried as hard as any, but I must admit that I’ve made a few enemies along the way.  Sometimes it’s people who just don’t like the way we serve God, or even the way we look.  There’s not much a person is able to do if someone just doesn’t like them.  When it hurts however; when it really hurts, is when you are betrayed by a friend.  Hundreds of teens have written me with stories of how their friends have betrayed them.  I too have felt that sting, and know that only God can heal that type of pain.  The bottom line is that any time we put all of our trust in another person, we are putting it in the wrong place.  Only our Lord is worthy of all our trust.  Sure, trust friends even though some will possibly hurt you.  That’s life I guess.  But when it comes down to the serious stuff, like your soul, trust only in the Lord!

“If an enemy were insulting me, I could endure it; if a foe were raising himself against me, I could hide from him.  But it is you, a man like myself, my companion, my close friend, with whom I once enjoyed sweet fellowship as we walked with the throng at the house of God.”  Psalm 55:12-14

In Christ,
