If you start looking for the greatest character flaws of David R. Wike, you’ll find TRUST to play an interesting role: I think it has something to do with being an introvert, but I place a HIGH, HIGH PREMIUM on TRUST. Trust governs much of what I do in life … I use it to filter true friendships, to decide with whom I will do personal business (and, consequently, business for the church), to decide for whom I will vote, etc. And sometimes it hard to remember that we are not perfect!!
We are human … We WILL make mistakes. The Lord knows I MAKE them all the time! Sometimes I have a hard time with that one!! When you think about it, GOD IS PERFECT and in Him we CAN place our ultimate and total trust!! AND, we can trust our fellow believers, as long as we remember that no one is perfect!! We all DO make mistakes from time to time and we ALL need to remember that!! And there is a difference between making mistakes and continually proving to be untrustworthy.
In Matthew 7:2, Jesus said ” … in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” What does that really mean?? The WAY you judge others WILL BE the way you are judged!!
I’m praying for my ability to trust today!! Hope you will pray for me too! And, I’ll pray for yours!
