Sometimes people, who we trust so much, may turn around and bite us. They may hurt us so bad, that we may decide never to trust anyone again.
When things like these happen, the tendency is for us to become very angry, and maybe, even vow to retaliate against them.
But, we forget that everything happens for a reason. Sometimes, it may actually be for our good when people whom we trust or rely so much upon go ahead and betray us.
Yes, the feeling can be painful, and maybe even intolerable. But before we go all out with venom and fury, let’s pause for a minute and take the time to reflect.
If you follow my blog and frequently read my posts, you may already realize that once in a while, I like to share about my faith.
So, yes, I wanted to share something fundamental about my faith in today’s piece. My faith is the number one reason; I am who I am today.
Now, back to why I think you should not get too mad at those that stab you in the back.
Imagine that Judas Iscariot did not betray Jesus, and set Him up to be crucified, then there would have been no basis for Christianity today.
For those of us, professing and practicing Christians, we are enjoying all the awesome benefits of the risen Christ because of that singular “awful” thing that Judas did.
He betrayed our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. And although the other disciples would have been very mad at him, what he did is actually the basis for why we have a relationship with God.
In essence, when people whom you love and trust, go ahead and spit in your face or stab you in the back, don’t focus too much on the ill or evil they have done to you.
Try to see the brighter side of things, and take solace in the fact that everything happens for a reason. And even though the reason may not be immediately obvious to you, just be consoled with the realization that everything is happening for your ultimate good.
So, as we celebrate the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords, let’s take the time to reflect on the true meaning of Easter.
Jesus’ betrayal, paved the way for our salvation, and that is the most beautiful event in history. And that event should give us all a better understanding of life itself. Knowing that everything indeed happens for a reason!
Have a wonderful Easter celebration!
