Will we be betrayed? Why will it happen?

God has a goal in mind for us. It could bring us into conflict with those we love most.

What is betrayal? Why does it carry such acute feelings for its victims?

Betrayal is very, very painful. Sometimes it seems like we just can’t let it go. It haunts us. Other days, not so much. This is common for many of us. We can’t get over it somehow.

Jesus knew the pain of betrayal firsthand. The worst, most treacherous betrayal of all time was Judas’s betrayal of Jesus for thirty pieces of silver (Matthew 26:15).

I encounter many who are shocked that they are betrayed. There is a spirit of entitlement that cries out that it is unfair. Justice and judgement belongs to God.
