Godliness, faithfulness, trustfulness and truthfulness are becoming scarce commodities in this generation therefore, do not trust a neighbour.
There comes an open lament because there are several establishments where there seems to be no traces of correct people who have the fear of God. Looking for Godly people in such places is as futile as looking for summer fruit after the harvest is over. Leaders are compared to hunters who weave clever nets and throw them over the helpers and get them trapped. We have more oppressors in high places than any generations before now. These leaders are more skillful at perverting the law of God and the law of the land than in obeying the commands of God. They are like briers and thorns that hurt people, when they should have been like concerned shepherds who help people. This terrible state has reached into every level of society. Even the common people of the land are likewise very unfaithful; corruption has eaten deep into ever where and everything. The situation confronting us now is that you almost cannot trust anybody including your neighbour. The lord Jesus Christ has sounded the warning that a man’s worst enemies will be right in his own home (Matt 10:36). The enemy of the church (Judas Iscariot) will be right in the sanctuary, serving or taking Holy Communion with others.
The destroyer of the nation may be in the president’s cabinet etc. when truth is no longer the standard for society, then everything starts to fall apart, for faithfulness to our word is the cement that holds society together.
What a threat to read “Do not trust a neighbour; put no confidence in a friend; even with her who lies in your embrace, be careful of your word’s Micah 7:vs5. Once God and godliness is removed from life, there is nothing but emptiness. Friend, where do you fit in?
Are you a victor or a victim? “But as for me I watch in hope for the LORD, I wait for God my savior; my God will hear me” (Micah 7vs 7).
