Capsule for the Day
Trust is the bedrock of a meaningful and healthy relationship. We trust not because we are certain, but we are certain because we trust. And this is the attitude of little children... more and more Jesus refers to them: "unless you become like a little child you can't enter the kingdom of God".
What is the connection between trust and the Kingdom of God? The answer is simple, the Kingdom of God is God's Presence with its effects of healing and restoration to wholeness. Without trust; we become afraid of God, we run away from His Kingdom like Adam and Eve did in the Garden.
What then becomes of us when we run away from God? We try to run away from our own selves, thinking we will find peace; but we don't. We end up building walls that distance us from loved ones; they become suspicious us and we distrust them... But when we trust we heal... and heal.
