Those entrusted with little, will be given much.
. . .
That verse has been on my mind all week. I’m not exactly sure why, but I thought, since I’ve been thinking about it ALL week (seriously every day), I should probably write something about it.
To be honest, I’m not exactly sure what’s the best context for the verse, but here’s what I came up with this week:
Trust must be earned, slowly! (From anyone: family, friends, God, etc…)
You can’t expect someone to just automatically trust you with their secrets, their personal problems, their belongings, etc…
For example: When you show someone something on your phone and they grab your phone to look at it, you don’t fully trust them because they might scroll further and you’re not ready to trust them yet (they haven’t earned your trust yet; unless they ARE your friend.).
Or another (better) example is: When you tell someone something confidential thinking they are trust worthy and then, they go and tell someone else, you feel let down and know not to trust that person again (they broke your trust and you don’t know if you want to give them another chance).
. . .
These 2 types of people should never be trusted, unless you’re 100% certain that they are trustworthy!
. . .
Earning trust takes time because we need to be sure that we can trust someone and that they will remain trustworthy after we tell or give them something.
I think that’s what the verse means.
Once you know you can trust someone with little things and secrets; you start to trust them with more because they have earned it, by showing you that they truly are trustworthy.
Thanks for reading!
