The dictionary says trust is “reliance on the integrity, strength, ability, surety, etc., of a person or thing; confidence”. Every day of our lives we need to trust many people. It starts at birth and continues till death. Who do you trust?
Do you trust your spouse? Over 50% of all marriages end in divorce. Divorces aren’t usually caused by too much salt in the mashed potatoes; somebody is cheating…emotionally and/or physically.
Do you trust your kids? If you have or had teens, you know what I mean. We were all teens. Teens can’t be trusted…period. Usually it’s OK…just pray a lot and hope the first 7 years you raised them did something positive to their wacky conscious minds. Whatever they do, it’s not personally directed at you…they’re teens. Maybe most importantly, do you trust your teens’ friends?
Do you trust your in-laws?
How about your neighbors? Do you trust all of them?
Do you trust your boss? How about your fellow-workers?
Do you trust the school system? Do you trust that your kids are getting a good education?
Do you trust your elected officials? How about just the ones of your party? Do you trust your state or federal government?
Do you trust Big Pharma? Do you trust Big Oil?
Do you trust Big AG? Do you trust Big Media?
Do you trust your doctor? Do you trust your auto dealer?
Can you be trusted?
