How should I respond to individuals who are not trustworthy?

Psalm 147:11Rather, the Lord’s delight is in those who honor him, those who put their hope in his unfailing love.

Jeremiah 17:5This is what the Lord says: “Cursed are those who put their trust in mere humans and turn their hearts away from the Lord.”

Isaiah 2:22Stop putting your trust in mere humans. They are as frail as breath. How can they be of help to anyone?

Psalm 41:9Even my best friend, the one I trusted completely, the one who shared my food, has turned against me.

Psalm 27:10Even if my father and mother abandon me, the Lord will hold me close.

Jonah 3:1-2Then the Lord spoke to Jonah a second time: “Get up and go to the great city of Nineveh, and deliver the message of judgment I have given you.”

John 21:15After breakfast Jesus asked Simon Peter, “Simon son of John, do you love me more than these?” “Yes, Lord,” Peter replied, “you know I love you.” “Then feed my lambs,” Jesus told him.

Acts 15:37-39Barnabas agreed and wanted to take along John Mark. But Paul disagreed strongly, since John Mark had deserted them in Pamphylia and had not shared in their work. Their disagreement over this was so sharp that they separated. Barnabas took John Mark with him and sailed for Cyprus.

Our ultimate trust should be in God. Even those who are most trustworthy can fail us at times. Whenever possible we should be willing to give others another chance.
