Whom Do You Trust?

God is a rock. He will never fail us. It's important to remember that when we are confronted with human failure.

As a kid, I woke up one day and decided I was a high-jumper. I didn't have a high-jump pit in which to practice, so I built my own. I tied a string around the telephone pole in our parkway and tied the other end to my bicycle, which was standing upright on the other side of the sidewalk. I couldn't really adjust the height much, but as it turned out, my pit was only going witness one jump. On my first effort, I failed to lift my first foot high enough and came down stomach-first on the concrete. It took several minutes to inhale my first post-jump breath. It was as though an invisible cannonball had penetrated my navel.

Today I got the same feeling when I found out troubling things about a couple of Christians...two guys in whom I've put a lot of trust. I can't believe it. It hurts. And what does God compel me to do in times like these?

1. Pray for them.
2. Don't gossip.
3. Lean on Him, the Rock.
