What is it? For me, it is something in the wind that I cannot grasp. Well, that isn’t entirely correct, I trust SU completely. And, I would say the trust level is about 99.99% for the guys in my Sunday morning class (the regulars, save CM). And the big fellow, 100%. Family? Hmm, high 90’s probably. The rest of the universe? <50.
Why is that? I have no clue. I’ve lived a relatively charmed life, certainly an easy one on any comparative scale.
Why then do I bring this up? Well, a guy I’ve been visiting is now starting to reach out to me. Nothing wrong with that, I initiated it, right? So, why do I think he wants something? I mean, something beyond that I have offered. Or, have I gone beyond what I think I’ve offered. Went visiting tonight and the Pastor went to visit him. As soon as that visit was over, the guy calls me on the cell to tell me about it. What does he want? What do I have to offer?
Trust. Webster says:
2. Custody; care.
3. Something committed into the care of another; charge.
4. a. The condition and resulting obligation of having confidence placed in one: violated a public trust.
b. One in which confidence is placed.
5. Reliance on something in the future; hope.
Why can’t I trust? Late.
