Scripture said we must Love them.I'm unsure why I'm so slow to trust people recently. People aren't "betraying" me or anything...ideas?
The title may not make sense...I was going to write more but decided not to.
Right. When someone asks for trust, I truly do want to, but sometimes I just don't...thanks for the input!Its actually unwise to trust people... other than through time spent with them to see that they are trustworthy. And when people ask you to trust them, that always makes me smile, because they are asking you to believe them based on faith. I only do that with God. But like Wired said, you should try to be kind and compassionate with them, but no trust unless you have spent a LOT of time with them (years) and have had the chance to see if they are truly trustworthy.
Greetings to you @Mari N.
I notice that you are 17, the same age as my oldest daughter.
So your thread touched my heart.
She has very recently left home and started university.
Although in many ways she is very "grown up"
She is still very young, naieve and vulnerable.
My prayerful message to my daughter is not to trust people, nor to take them at face value.
The world is full of evil......waiting to pounce and entrap.
Look to the Lord and seek His guidance in all friendships, contacts and relationships
Ask Him to give you clear "red flags" of warning
Trust Him to lead you to beautiful Christian friendship where trust can grow and bloom.
And as the dear brothers posting here have said......be loving, kind, compassionate
He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in Him will I trust.
