You can too
Betrayal always cuts the deepest.
Great article. Thank you for the reminder and encouragement.
One of the parts of the 'Our Father' which I always reflect on is "forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us." There's a lot there. In our day-to-day life, Our co-workers, family, and friends can trespass against us, but we're called to forgive them as we ask God to forgive our own betrayals against Him. It cuts deeper when we ask Him for the grace of protection against the deprivation of evil and sin which causes us to hurt around us.
“The saddest thing about betrayal is that it never comes from your enemies, it comes from those you trust the most.” Author unknown.
This is as true today, as it was when Judas betrayed Jesus over 2000 years ago. But, as you so eloquently put it, without that betrayal, the Son of Man could not see His glory! I am sure God has his reasons for these betrayals. The hard part is always understanding the why. I am sure that one day, when we are face to face with Him, we’ll know and understand. Until then, we have to have faith! Great post, loved it!
