Trust is one of those fascinating subjects. At one point or another, we have all said to someone, or heard them say to us, “trust me.”
Biblically, we know the emphasis in scripture on trusting God. When we consider the implications behind this, the intent is for us to understand that God is worthy of our trust. The reasons are fairly simple; He is faithful to keep His promise and guard what we entrust to Him.
This idea raises an interesting question: can God trust us? Do we have and demonstrate the type of character that is worthy of that trust?
The answer should align with the same reasons described with God. We must be faithful to our promise to Him and we need to guard what has been entrusted to us.
While both are critical for our development as Christians, the second needs a little clarification.
God has entrusted us with His word. If we are trustworthy we will be good students of His word and be diligent to make application of His word.
When this happens, it makes it easier to share it with others.
