TRUST JESUS; FORGIVE HUMANS
Trust is a very precious thing. It is truly a blessing if you can trust another human, or if another human is able to trust you. Sometimes humans make mistakes and mess up really bad and the trust has to be earned. Once we trust again and truly believe a person is who they say they are, it is really disappointing when we find out they are not. Even so, we must carry on, forgive, and hope for the day we can trust. Pray for your enemies. Do good to those who use and persecute you, even wolves in sheep's clothing. For even Judas would have been forgiven by Jesus if he had asked for forgiveness. Even those who actually crucified Him would have been forgiven if they confessed their sins and turned to Jesus. Jesus loved and forgave even the unloveable, mentally unstable, demon-possessed who ranted and raved all day. He had compassion on even him..... we must also be compassionate like Jesus.
1 Then they came to the other side of the sea, to the country of the Gadarenes. 2 And when He had come out of the boat, immediately there met Him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit, 3 who had his dwelling among the tombs; and no one could bind him, not even with chains, 4 because he had often been bound with shackles and chains. And the chains had been pulled apart by him, and the shackles broken in pieces; neither could anyone tame him. 5 And always, night and day, he was in the mountains and in the tombs, crying out and cutting himself with stones. 6 When he saw Jesus from afar, he ran and worshiped Him...............18 And when He got into the boat, he who had been demon-possessed begged Him that he might be with Him. 19 However, Jesus did not permit him, but said to him, "Go home to your friends, and tell them what great things the Lord has done for you, and how He has had compassion on you.
