Trust is precious. Trust is a gift.

Posted on Wednesday, April 13, 2011 in Uncategorized

Trusting people, like trusting the weather forecast, is difficult; there are many variables.

Trusting someone is hard, but it’s even harder for some people.  When we’ve been burned by untrustworthy people, we distrust others.

When friends or family member abandon us, we assume others will do the same thing.

When we’ve lost a loved one, we have life experiences that often make trust seem even more risky.

When we have scars and unhealed open wounds they beckon us to believe that love is not worth it.

Trust is precious.  Trust is a gift.

Many people claim to immediately trust others, but they are either lack discernment, are deceptive or are delusional. Like a shallow rooted tree that blows over in a strong wind is a person who trusts others too quickly.

Genuine trust works roots slowly and deeply so that trials and troubles do not topple.

Genuine trust is hard to gain and easily lost.

Trust is a building block of love.

Trust slowly, if you want your “trust” to be trustworthy.

Here are some trustworthy sayings:

A gossip goes around telling secrets,but those who are trustworthy can keep a confidence. [Proverbs 11:13]

If you want trustworthy relationships distrust gossips, he/she will not prove trustworthy or confidential.

Anyone who loves to quarrel loves sin; anyone who trusts in high walls invites disaster. [Proverbs 17:19]

If you want trustworthy relationships distrust drama-filled people.  Drama-filled people create drama.  They enjoy the attention, power and tension of quarrelsome relationships.

Trusting a fool to convey a message is like cutting off one’s feet or drinking poison! [Proverbs 26:6]

Asking people to pass along important information for you is usually unwise.  Speak for yourself as often as possible.

Communication misunderstandings easily arise, but they are even more likely when you put your words in the hands of a fool.

Those who trust their own insight are foolish, but anyone who walks in wisdom is safe. [Proverbs 28:26]

When we trust fools, we prove ourselves to be untrustworthy.  When we ourselves are fools, we are blind to the insights of trustworthy people.  Safe people wisely provide us with a haven of wisdom.
