It is a shame that we live in a world plagued with people with good intentions. Sometimes, we think they are better than those with bad intentions, but there is a reason for the saying…”the road to hell is paved with good intentions“. I’ve come to notice some of the instances when people who mean well should not be trusted, or taken with a pinch of skepticism. Here are ten:
- “Yes, I will always love you“. It easy to declare eternal love to somebody else, but humanly impossible to do what love commands (e.g endure all things, hope all things, believe all things – 1 Cor 13:7). Truth is, there are always things competing for our love, and well, even if we technically always love the person we profess to love, that love may suffer lows as well as highs. God’s love is the only one that is constant. It takes God to love, which is why “so help me God” is added when saying marriage vows.
- “Yes, you can count on me“. Many people profess to be realiable… Everyone thinks they are trustworthy or dependable. Best friends are made for such times… but humans are only reliable in their ability to disappoint…
