(Proverbs 7:19 KJV) For the goodman is not at home, he is gone a long journey:
This reminds me that there are many situations that I cannot resolve or prevent. The man being described here has done nothing to deserve being betrayed. At least we don’t know of anything. He has gone on a business trip. It may have been necessary to keep his business going. It is probably the way in which he earns the wealth to support his wife so that she can spend his money stabbing him in the back.
I would venture to guess that there are things facing many of us today that are not pleasant. We have played by the rules and done the responsible things. In spite of that we are on the short end of the stick. One of the things we need to remember is that our success is not measured in who gets the promotion or who is publically recognized. It is in being faithful to His calling.
So? We cannot make others trustworthy, just ourselves. God sets the standard and we either obey or not. I promise not to feel guilt for the actions of others.
