Psalm 118:8 It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man.

Psalm 146:3 Do not put your trust in princes, in human beings, who cannot save.

As we see, we’re not meant to completely trust any human. There’s no exception to any human. That includes ministers.

Unfortunately, there are some not so great ministers out there. Because of their title and position, some of us trust them entirely. We trust they hear from God and believe they have our best interest at heart, but that’s not always the case. Some of these so called ministers provide poor unscriptual advice, tell all our business after we’ve confided in them, and don’t practice what they preach. And if our trust is betrayed, we don’t want anything to do with the church or God. God never intended for us to live this way. 

This all could be avoided if we remembered to place our trust in God and not man. As God leads, we can give a portion of our trust to a person, but always remembering they’re a person who intentionally or unintentionally will miss the mark. Place your trust in God.
