Whom Do You Trust
Posted: Saturday, September 8
2 Corinthians 10:1-18
Verse of the Day:
Don’t put your trust in mere humans.
They are as frail as breath.
What good are they? (Isaiah 2:22)
The Webster dictionary defines the word trust as the “reliance on the character, ability, strength, or truth of someone or something”.
You trust your Pastor for your personal and church’s spiritual health and growth. You trust your spouse and family members to support and encourage you in every circumstance. You trust your employer, source of income, to finance all your needs and wants. You trust your child not to stray from the path you’ve raised them on. Our human nature can’t help but to partake in the behavior to “trust” humans.
When placing such trust in “mere” (solely) humans you’re also placing an expectation. An expectation usually formed by your own assumptions of a person’s ability to meet it. Often times an expectation is not met or trust is broken leaving us disappointed and frustrated. The exact reason we are instructed in God’s word not to trust in “mere” (solely) humans.
