There are things that people detest when it comes to dealing with humanity. Near the top of the list would be the dislike of being taken advantage of by another person. Particularly, if it involves their money. Everyone has their story of how and when it happened to them. In some stories the culprit is a person that you love and care about. Other stories involve friends, acquaintances and even strangers that tried or did dupe you, because of your goodness and trust in them. In fact, the Sacred Scriptures are replete with examples of people taking advantage of others. Let’s examine the first “But God” event that we encounter, when it comes to someone taking advantage of another. How you respond and what you focus on, determines your victory or disappointment.
