Who can I really trust? My bank manager, my boss, my minister or my hairdresser?
Some might argue that only the last named is really trustworthy although even that relationship can be strained on occasion … a bad hair day? Trust is fragile – tough to build but all too easily broken by words or events.
Our trust as Christians is closely linked to our conviction, lying as it does at the heart of what we believe. As The Message puts it “we can be sure of our ground” because will take care of everything – both our needs and our trust.
