Who Should We Entrust Ourselves To?

"But Jesus would not entrust himself to them, for he knew all men. He did not need man's testimony about man, for he knew what was in a man." - John 2:24-25 NIV 1984

"But Jesus [for His part] did not trust Himself to them, because He knew all [men]; And He did not need anyone to bear witness concerning man [needed no evidence from anyone about men], for He Himself knew what was in human nature. [He could read men's hearts.]" - John 2:24-25 AMP

"But Jesus didn't entrust his life to them. He knew them inside and out, knew how untrustworthy they were. He didn't need any help in seeing right through them." - John 2:24-25 MSG 

"But Jesus didn’t trust them, because he knew human nature. No one needed to tell him what mankind is really like." - John 2:24-25 NLT 

 So, what's your verdict? Do you believe what God says about you, or what man says? Remember to make the right - and the liberating and freeing - choice. Remember ... no fence sitting.


  1. Hi Paula. I have learnt that the only one you can trust - is Christ. Doesn't matter what anyone says about how trustworthy they or anyone else is. I can only trust Him, the one who created me.
    God bless

  2. In the past, I have placed my trust in people and things. However, through many trials and lessons learned ...Jesus is the Only One I can truly trust.

    Thanks for stopping by Heart Choices Paula!

    Blessings and love,

    PS. Don't forget to count those everyday blessings. :)
