Trust is a Must–How to be Trustworthy?
Trust is one of the eight characteristics of great marriages. (See a previous blog Eight to Be Great (http://ccstoday.com/page1370406.aspx).) The next two blogs will discuss what it takes to be trustworthy. Before expecting others to trust five things need to be in place:
1.Trust in Someone Greater: If you think you have or can come up with all of the solutions yourself than it is going to be hard for others to trust you. Putting my trust in God actually gives those close to you security. It displays humility, which always destroys apprehension.
2.Trust in Timeless Principles: You don’t have to come up with truth; all you have to do is align yourself with truth that has already been established. Revealed truth through Scripture and ancient writings will not change. When you align yourself with universal truth others will trust you. They will know that you grounding in more than just your shallow understanding.
Questions to Ponder: To what extent do I have to come up with all the solutions? How much am I trusting God so that others can trust me?How much humility am I displaying in my relationships? How much am I seeking out truth? What are some timeless principles I have been ignoring?
Psalm 143:8 Let the morning bring word of Your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in You. Show me the way I should go, for to You I entrust my life.
