Don't Be Conned
"The heart is devious above all else; it is perverse—who can understand it?” —Jeremiah 17:7
I don't know if you are a sucker like me, but man is so easily conned. You are conned at the intersection of trust and deception, where you choose to extend trust to another, and they choose to deceive. It's true, isn't it? That right at the border of trust we are deceived by another. And while we want to believe in mortal man, mankind in the end only cares about themselves and their advantage, and thus we stumble into the great truth of the text above—"the heart is devious about all else." For even the finest of men is not to be trusted for in the end they seek only their interest to such a point, it's "perversion is incomprehensible."
DO THIS: Trust in the Lord, not in mortal man.
PRAYER: God, you will never take advantage of me but only seek my best interest. Teach me to trust more in you and less in mortal man today.
