Daily Verse: “Trusting in a treacherous man in time of trouble is like a bad tooth or a foot that slips.“ Prov. 25:19

Bad tooth.

Unfaithful people cause pain and agony, like a bad tooth or a lame foot. Trusting unreliable people wastes time and money, especially in times of trouble. When the storms start whipping, you want dependable people to help you through them. People who will pick up the slack when you can’t.

Fall started with a case of the flu for me. What began as a headache became two weeks of the virus running through my system. Losing my voice due to coughing, I couldn’t coach. Thankfully, I have a reliable and trustworthy business partner who found people to help her cover my classes during my illness.

Trustworthy people can easily handle the pressure of unexpected storms and navigate the rough waters. But those who prove themselves lacking in character will only cause more heartache.

Don’t put trust in treacherous people. Depending on a decaying tooth or lame foot only causes more pain. Using discernment will help you place your trust in those who deserve it.

Lord, forgive us for placing our trust in the wrong people. As we move through our days, please help us choose wisely those we rely upon during the storm. Give us discernment to make good decisions that bring life to our bones. IJNIP. Amen
