Two Things You Must Never Do
REFERENCE: Proverbs 25:18-19 Telling lies about others is as harmful as hitting them with an ax, wounding them with a sword, or shooting them with a sharp arrow. 19 Putting confidence in an unreliable person in times of trouble is like chewing with a broken tooth or walking on a lame foot.
Furture, We need to think carefully about who we call upon in times of trouble. In fact, we need to consider carefully the relationships we build before trouble comes. If we look to be close to those who are reliable as people, if we are reliable ourselves, then when trouble comes we will have the help that we need. Dependability ought to be one characteristic that we look for in close friends and that others can find in us.
I have made the mistake, too often, in thinking that I can “fix” broken people and ending up trusting them in tough times and being let down. Doing so has really cost me. It has taught me to never stop loving and caring for the “unreliable”, just don’t make them my go to guy or gal in time of stress.
