Day 113: Broken Trust — The Bible in a Year (with Fr. Mike Schmitz)

39

📖 Follow along with the official Bible in a Year Reading Plan: https://tinyurl.com/y4nuhtps

In today’s readings, we learn how Doeg the Edomite betrayed David, the priests, and the Lord. Fr. Mike explains that betrayal is painful because our hearts are deeply wounded when trust is broken. Today we read 1 Samuel 21-22 and Psalm 52.

We hear everyday from our community how The Bible in a Year helps to capture hearts and souls for Christ. While we’re happy to make it free to our audience, it’s not free to create!

  1. Yesterday's was hard for me which I listened to today because I am listening to more than one to catch up. And the one for today I assume is going to hit me in sore spots but I offer it all up to God as I did ask for God to melt and heal my heart. FYI my heart has never really been that frozen. But after being hurt too much something in us gets stuck and our lives spin like wheels in the mud. Peace and Blessings!

  3. Really loved the explanation about betrayal. The one thing that touched me the most was the Bread of the Presence and how much of our catholic mass and practices is steeped in tradition. Love the one true catholic church!

  4. Lord, We proclaim your name. Heal us if past wounds inflicted on us by others we’ve trusted. Help us to forgive and move forward. Teach us how to be loyal friends ourselves. Thank you for always being our constant, present, compassionate friend. 🙏🏻

  5. Have you ever been torn between your faith , and your culture. I have always been raised a Catholic. I went to Catholic schools until eighth grade. Then, my parents moved us to Riviera, Texas, a small town, in Texas. My senior year – I lost my guy best friend, who was in a car wreck. He was hit by his best friend,
    ,
    . My best friend’s brother was killed in a car accident a month before my mom past away from cancer two weeks before graduation. I have overcome being betrayed by my husband with his sisters’ best friend . His whole family knew and were okay with it. In fact his sisters are still friends with her. I have forgiven them, but we do not speak to them. God’s Grace we overcame that, and have been married 31 years. We have 4 children. It see,s you would think that was hard- no life gets harder. I teach so I have been a teacher for 16 years. My middle son, who was 20 at the time met a 22 yr old agnostic woman who was married at 18 divorced at 21 year old. My children have been raised Catholic. They have been alter servers, gone to Steubenville, worked a Sea City Work camp through high school. My three oldest have even been been a pilgrim – Journey to Damascus. My two oldest sons were so close to the church the priest thought they had that gift to be priest. This woman was into witchcraft and she told my son that if he was to date her he had to be part of her ex-boyfriend’s family. It’s been two years since he has really seen us. He does not communicate with my 83 year old father, his older brother who has a child now. He has only seen his niece once. He doesn’t speak to anyone in the family. He has called be the serpent in the garden of Eden because I slapped him one time. That was the day I told him as a Catholic mom- I couldn’t condone their relationship. Since then- my husband has broke his heel then three months later fractured several of his ribs. Our plumbing broke, refrigerator broke, my job this year has been toxic. I had to see a neurologist for migraines and I am 51 who never had headaches. The neurologist said I had a mild stroke. My ADHD medicine doesn’t work because my anxiety, stress, and now recently maniac depression does not allow my ADHD medicine to work correctly. This has caused me to get written up by my principal because I get compared to the math interventionist. I am the reading interventionist for the first even through I have taught 16 years. I see kids 25 minutes a day twice a week without a curriculum, but I get in trouble for anything. One of the first things I was asked is why I didn’t bond as easily as the math interventionist. I replied maybe because she has been with the district longer. She was my youngest son’s second grade teacher and he is in tenth grade. I have been asked to resign and told staff and kids have said things about me that are not true. I have been told I have said things. I literally never leave my classroom. I know as a Catholic – I am not suppose to believe in horoscopes, tarot cards, curandero, or the ojo. But, as a Mexican with the Mexican culture how can I not feel like someone has put something on my family. I even went to confession and spoke to my priest of how scared I was having these feelings. I cry almost every day to and from work knowing people are saying things not true. I know God has a plan for why I have to go through this, but I am an extrovert. I am not use to being alone. The loneliness is what is killing me. The headaches and nausea are back. My youngest is getting confirmed Wednesday. God help me because I hope my middle son and his wife now do not go. He married her and didn’t tell anyone. I have already forgiven him, and will always love him. I gave him back to God because his hatred for me was more than I could stand. He was my closest child when the two oldest moved out. I have cried more this year than ever, and it is because of my job not him. I think it is because I had to let go to have peace within myself, This is the first time my faith has clashed with my culture and it is scary. The betrayal and loneliness is more than I can bare.

  6. 1 Samuel 21 shows David meeting Abimelech the priest in the city / town of Nob. David claims he is on secret business at the command of the king. David asks the priest for five loaves of holy bread. David requests a sword and Abimelech points him to the sword of Goliath. David takes it and flees to Gath where he meets Achish the king. When rumors of David's identity spread, David feigns madness before the king so he can escape.

    1 Samuel 22 shows David escaping to the cave of Adullam. David's brothers visit him there and he soon becomes the captain of about 400 men. David goes to Mizpah of Moab and asks the king of Moab to take care of his parents. The prophet Gad tells David to head to the land of Judah. Meanwhile Saul accuses his aides of treason in Gibeah and accuses his son Jonathan of starting a mutiny. Doeg the Edomite reports to Saul that he saw David heading to Nob with the sword of Goliath. Saul has Abimelech the priest come to him and accuses him of conspiring with David. Abimelech asks who is as faithful as David. Saul is angered and orders the execution of the priests to be carried out by Doeg the Edomite. David manages to protect Abiathar, the only survivor among Abimelech's family.

    Psalm 52 is a Contemplation of David that concerns the betrayal of Doeg the Edomite in 1 Samuel 22. David asks why Doeg boasts in evil. He accuses Doeg of being deceitful and predicts God shall destroy him forever. The righteous shall laugh at Doeg for trusting in his own riches rather than God's strength. David vows to praise God's Good Name forever.

  8. Just the mere thought of God pursuing me is more than enough to look past the betrayal I experienced from my family. No one would ever believe what my own parents and sister did…I won't even try to rehash the past. I'm praying daily for forgiveness and for the ability to show the mercy Jesus showed to me over 2000 years ago. And God bless everyone here on this journey! God bless you Father Mike!

  9. Thank you Fr Mike for showing us so vibrantly how the way the Lord taught the Jewish people into worship in the Old Testament prefigures the sacrifice Jesus made and the sacrifice of the Mass. How indescribably privileged we are to be literally nourished by the love of God for us!

  10. Being betrayed or having betrayed someone is a bitter pill to swallow. Help me Blessed Holy Trinity help me to forgive those whom I have betrayed and forgive those who have hurt me. Help me to increase my trust in you amen 🙏.

  11. Hard sometimes to feel relief from betrayal. Especially when it was from your own mother and father and only sister. But I thank God that he walked with me into adulthood and stayed with me even when I failed to see that many times. I guess that is my prayer for today. I never want to be a person that cant be trusted and I trust in God all the time.

  12. Dear Lord Help Us , it’s difficult 🙏🏾❤️
    “For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father also will forgive you;”
    ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭6:14‬ ‭

  13. Thank You Father Mike for sharing the Bible with us. It is a blessing. Praying for Father Mike and everyone else. Lord please Bless those injured by betrayal and may we keep them in our prayers.

  14. One of the deepest sorrows of my life is I am remembering persons in my life who trusted me and I believe I betrayed that trust on some level. We can't turn back the clock. Heart oh aching heart.

  15. Another great lesson! Trust!

    Praying for all who are participating in this Bible in a Year. Please join me in praying for Souls in Purgatory. They need our help as someday we may need this same help.

    Also, I was listening to the Marian Press of Saint Faustina’s Diary in a Year. It is wonderful! Just 6-8 minutes a day. So worth it. It is also on YouTube and in book form.

  16. The Bible is a Catholic book the protestant Bible is an incomplete and corrupted Catholic book for proof watch Steve Ray’s excellent testimony. There’s ONLY ONE CHURCH therefore protestant’s are NOT Christian. To be a Christian one MUST belong to the ONLY CHURCH THERE IS the ONE HOLY CATHOLIC AND APOSTOLIC CHURCH founded by God himself Two thousand year’s ago! Watch Don’t call protestant’s Christian. Then The Papacy can NOT be destroyed. Then the warning or illumination of conscience by Christine Watkins. God bless. Praise Jesus and Mary always!!!
