The bible is full of wonderful, God loving imperfect people. It also has some of the most reviled people in history. Your life is probably similar. Most of the people you interact are wonderful loving friends and family but you may also have a Judas in your life.

We don’t know a great deal about Judas but he gives us a few clues that might help us recognize someone toxic in our life.

First, he was invited into Jesus’ circle without a lot of previous information about who he was or what he believed. He was known to the disciples and Jesus but not known very well and he didn’t reveal much about himself. Who have you invited to be a part of your life that maybe you need to learn more about before you allow them to get closer to you?

Second, he was around often but he was never in the inner circle of Jesus’ closest allies. He wasn’t a third wheel but he never seemed to quite fit in with the rest of the group. Do have someone that is always hanging around and sticking their nose into your affairs?

Top 2 Ways To Understand That You Are Not Alone

 

Loneliness is a pervasive feeling that often overwhelms us. We can feel alone when a spouse or child leaves us. We can feel alone if we believe that no one understands us.

Often we feel alone in the middle of a crowd but what does it mean when the Bible says, that God will never leave me or forsake me. It means that God’s presence in our lives is more than a feeling.

  1. First, we need to remember that we have been on the mind of God who loves us and sent his son to die for us since the beginning of creation. Through His perfect plan He is leading and guiding us through every moment and we have the promise of the Holy Spirit to comfort us. It is impossible for God to break a promise He has made.
  2. Second, get out and share. Share your smile with a child, share your laughter with a friend, share your wit with a stranger, share your God given gifts with a person in need, and share your desires and dreams with God himself.

Praying this helps your move forward today.
