The Daily Nosh – II Thessalonians 3:2
Also pray that we may be rescued from perverse and evil people, for not all are trustworthy. (TLV) II Thessalonians 3:2
Nosh: We are all vulnerable to those who gain our trust, then secretly betray it and act in their own self-interest to our harm. So what is the solution? Paul says the answer is to pray and seek divine assistance. Help comes in the form of discernment to see the deception early and avoid it or once caught in the painful trap of betrayal, how to escape and minimize the harm. Without God’s help, we are likely to be victimized more often and our lives considerably more painful. I know this to be true from personal experience.
