Being human, human beings are not perfect and because they are not perfect, each and every human being will sooner or later let other human beings down and will be let down by those they let down. This happens over and over again and has been happening ever since the first humans let themselves down by being disobedient to God. Worse yet, it will continue to happen because, again, human beings are not perfect and so therefore we will continue to let each other down. The only person who doesn’t let us down is God, because unlike the human beings He created He is perfect and therefore not only does He not let us down, He never has and never will. That’s why, while there are other human beings each human being can trust, the only person they can fully trust and trust to never violate that trust and let them down is God. The Bible cautions us about putting our trust in earthly things and that includes human beings who, though created in the image of God, lack His perfection and therefore cannot be completely trusted. We should instead place all our trust in Him and allow Him to lead, guide and direct us, because when we do so, we will have fewer disappointments in life and be less likely to constantly let others down. We will still not be perfect, but we will be better than we were because the one who is perfect is in control of our lives.
