2 Kings 5: 20 But Gehazi, the servant of Elisha the man of God, [p]thought, “Behold, my master has spared this Naaman the Aramean, [q]by not accepting from his hand what he brought. As the Lord lives, I will run after him and take something from him.” 21 So Gehazi pursued Naaman. 

            This entire chapter of scripture from the life of Elisha demonstrates clearly the fact the even the most discerning of people are not immune from the treachery of those closest to them. Greed, lust and self-promotion can and will turn the heads of most that you might take into your confidence. Perhaps that is why Jesus warned the disciples

“Behold, I am sending you out as sheep in the midst of wolves; so be as wary as serpents, and as innocent as doves. (Matthew 10:16) Betrayal is something Jesus understands all too well. The entire history of Israel is one of betrayal and treachery. Read this entire chapter and try to understand all of the deep emotions at play. Pride, misplaced love, self-interest, greed are all at play. Learn from this that God will not be mocked. Galatians 6:7
