Look to God. For men will disappoint but God will never.

Have you ever been disappointed by people whom you believe in? Those that you actually thought that they had your back. Because you poured into their lives, showed them you cared for them through your time and effort.

They then manage to strip off all of your strength and will to be kind and patient by doing exactly the opposite to you.

Truthfully, sometimes you want to just totally give up on this person and ask yourself “why do I even bother?

But you know, I believe God has placed difficult people in our lives to shape and mould us to be more like Him everyday. Jesus too had some tough people to deal with in His life on earth. But yet He chose to do good towards them in return, love them, and even died on the cross for them.

So this verse came into my mind when I was feeling disappointed.

Galatians 6:9

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.

Matthew 5:46

If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that?

I think the ability to do good unto others continuously even though you might not receive the same treatment back, is indeed very powerful and speaks volumes.

It speaks volumes about the God you serve. About how He is so great, that you do not have to highlight the petty things you are upset about in life.

Because you choose to highlight Him and His greatness.
