Trust is something so elusive in this world. It seems that we cannot fully trust everybody including ourselves. How many times have we been hurt because those we trusted with all our heart betrayed us? How we cried and spent sleepless nights because of the cruel betrayal of our trust? And how many times we were so disappointed with ourselves because we were not able to keep our promises? Why? Because we are finite beings, unable to be faithful in every way and in every circumstances. Because we have been swayed by the machinations of the evil one. And when we succumb to his temptations, we hurt ourselves and our loved ones as well. The only Being we can trust wholeheartedly, and who will never ever break our trust, is God. He is faithful and true to the very end and He never lies. He is always patient with us and understand our weaknesses and our proclivity to sin. That was why He sent His only begotten Son to save us from ourselves and from the corruption of this world. We must understand the weaknesses of man and must not expect 100% trust and confidence in him and in ourselves as well. Only God is truly trustworthy and is faithful to the very end.
