I have good news and I have bad news. First, the bad news: People are going to disappoint you - even those who are closest to you. Now the good news: Jesus knows exactly what that feels like. In all of human history there was nobody who was betrayed as brutally as Jesus was. What’s incredible is the way he responded to the betrayal.
That leads me to another round of good news and bad news. This time, the good news first: When someone disappoints you, YOU CAN respond the same way Jesus did. The bad news: When someone disappoints you, you HAVE TO respond the same way Jesus did. Yeah, I know. But, it’s all part of being a Christian Bro.
