Trust - It's Important

Trust is an important part of life.  Without it, you cannot have a marriage, a team or a life.  In fact, there is very little you can do without it.  So how can you have more trust?

Be trustworthy.
Titus 2:7 Show yourself in all respects to be a model of good works, and in your teaching show integrity, dignity,

If you want trust from others, give it away.  This is where action speaks louder than words.  Be a good model of trustworthiness.  Your word is your bond and you will not if at all possible, break it.  

Also, you will need a track record of consistency.  The longer you are trustworthy, the more integrity you will acquire.  People will look to you for assistance in their life if they believe in you.  Integrity is necessary.  

Show dignity.  This is a rare commodity these days.  So when you show someone dignity, they will respond with joy.  Trust demands that you treat others better than they probably deserve.  Why?  Because trust believes that people can be better than they are.  

PRAY:  Dear Jesus, I trust you, but help me to give trust to others too.  AMEN.
