Who Can I Trust ?!

Knowing who to trust can be tricky.

Folks who seem upright and fair can turn right around and stab you in the back.

"Good Friends" can betray you to your enemies.

"True Love" can evaporate overnight.

Today's quote from Reality provides a means for seeing where people stand in relation to justice, equity, fairness, and trust:

"Know thou for a certainty that whoso disbelieveth in God is neither trustworthy nor truthful….He that acteth treacherously towards God will, also, act treacherously towards his king. Nothing whatever can deter such a man from evil, nothing can hinder him from betraying his neighbour, nothing can induce him to walk uprightly."

Bahá’u’lláh: The Summons of the Lord of Hosts, Súriy-i-Mulúk or Súrih to the Kings, paragraph 60, p. 210
