Ahhh trust, something many of us have very much trouble with. This has alot to do with faith. It has a lot to do with believing and communication. From acquaintances to friends to spouses & family, when it becomes our tendency not to trust, that is a big problem. As Christians we are to be trusting...and not exactly gullable, but trusting. There is a difference. Sometimes we don't want to trust someone who has wronged us...and that has much to do with forgiveness. A person will not always lie, though. We have to have faith in knowing we always should do the right thing, no matter what our human insides say. We are new creations in Christ, and if there is no trust, how can there be love? We are to trust in God, who is right, and not in other things. Not trusting in God has many consequences.
