People will turn on you

Steven Furtick had an insightful post on his blog on how people will turn on you. It will happen, he says. And he gives the following examples:
  • Children turn on their natural parents, who loved them an did an above average job raising them
  • Staff members turn on their pastors…and yank half the donor base out from under the church in the process
  • Pastors turn on their congregations, committing unthinkable acts of immorality and deceit
  • Husbands turn on faithful wives of 24 years because the girl at the office made him feel young, funny, and relatively attractive.
I hate to admit, but Steven is absolutely right. I've seen it more times than I care to remember, in every one of the contexts he lists. Don't let it be you who turns on someone who loves you.

But what if it happens to you? Steven gives some great advice on this. Read the entire post here.
