Thought for Today: “In Whom Do We Trust?”
Back in 1981, a survey conducted by The Ladies Home Journal asked, “In whom do you trust?” The answers may come as a shock. Walter Cronkite received 40% of the vote, Pope John Paul 26%, Billy Graham 6%, and God came in with 3%.
We have trusted many people and many things in our lives. We’ve trusted our families, friends, and even our bosses. We’ve trusted our transportation devices, our doctors and health care system, and even our government. What do all these things have in common? They all have, at one time or another, failed our trust.
We have all felt the disastrous results of failed trust. Confidences are shattered, tears are shed, feelings are hurt, trust is damaged, and bitterness grows. Whom or what can we trust? Jesus tells us to trust God, and since Jesus is God, the second person of the Godhead, He tells us to trust in Him.
“Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in Me.” (John 14:1)
Our problem is that we’ve gotten our eye off the ball. We’ve become so focused on everything and everyone else that we’ve taken our focus off of the Creator of life.
So, our coinage has it right, don’t trust in riches, trust in God, or “In God We Trust.”
