Word of the Day: Trust



1a: assured reliance on the character, ability, strength, or truth of someone or something b: one in which confidence is placed

1a: to commit or place in one’s care or keeping : entrust b: to permit to stay or go or to do something without fear or misgiving
2 a: to rely on the truthfulness or accuracy of : believe <trust a rumor> b: to place confidence in : rely on <a friend you can trust> c: to hope or expect confidently <trusts that the problem will be resolved soon>

3. Firm reliance on the integrity, ability, or character of a person or thing.


We trust in God; however, when we place trust in people the proposition becomes much more difficult. We trust people to do the right thing. We trust people that they will do what they say and promise. We trust people that we put faith in and people who have gained our confidence. We trust those who we have developed a relationship with and have become close. We trust those that we hold close, who we care for, he we want to succeed and to those who we hope want the same for us in return.  

Trust is never something to be taken lightly and should never be given away with thought. However, when one does place their trust in another, it is a great responsibility to the recipient. When given the gift of trust it would be wise and prudent to comprehend and fully understand what a beautiful and treasured gift that trust truly is and what one has received.

      I “trust” you are trying to tell us something — can you at least tell us which case you are referring to?

      i trusted mccain/palin to do what they promised to do. they both had track records to back up their claims. obama proved time after time that he was not a truthful, morally strong, or courageous person. eagleberger called him a charlatan, and i believe that aptly describes him. he makes a great speech, but they are always empty promises he either has no intention or ability to deliver on.

      Firm reliance on the integrity, ability,

      or character of a person or thing.

      I suppose you could say that one must win our trust…

      Otherwise, we are, merely, practicing ‘blind faith’.


      Faith without works is dead.
