Dealing with personal betrayal is not easy. In today’s world we feel that any betrayal merits retaliation. If you do this to me, if you do not stand with me you deserve some kind of negative reaction. When faced with the pain and sadness that comes with knowing that those we trusted did not value us enough to deserve their support we have the popular culture telling us that we don’t need to accept it. Yet Jesus shows us another way. It is not an easy way but it is the only way that violence is not perpetuated.
