…trust

Trust… It is such a big word often taken for granted. The moment trust is challenged it is forever bruised…like that banana in your bag that was the perfect shade of yellow when you grabbed it on your way out the door.

When we say we trust one another we are saying we acknowledge that perfect shade of yellow. That shade that indicates it’s just right because just like that banana needs time to ripen from that electric green to that perfect yellow our relationships with one another must do the same. We give one another time to “ripen” and build the foundation that leads to trust. Trust in character. Trust in words. Trust in actions. When we say “trust me” we are saying I will not bruise you. We are saying fall freely and I will handle you with care so you remain that perfect yellow, so the friendship remains that perfect yellow, so the relationship remains that perfect yellow…

Can those in your life truly trust you? If you were completely exposed would anyone walk away with bruises tarnishing that perfect shade of yellow?  Think about it…

…until next time
