Scientists tell us that atoms are the building blocks of everything in the universe. All matter is made up of atoms. Atoms are so small that you cannot see them. Yet, each of us — and every physical thing — is made up of millions and millions of atoms.
While atoms are the building blocks of physical matter, trust is the building block of relationships and society. Without trust, our world would be paralyzed. Allow me to explain.
When you go to a restaurant and order a meal, you are trusting that the cooks know how to fix the meal in a sanitary fashion so that you will not get sick. When you fly on an airplane, you are trusting that the pilot knows what he is doing in the cockpit and that he will get you and all other passengers to your destination safely. When you go shopping for groceries, you are trusting that the manufacturers have not put poison into the food. When you attend college, you are trusting that the teachers and the textbooks are giving you accurate, useful information. When you receive a prescription from a doctor, you are trusting that the medicine he says you should take will actually help you get better and not make your illness worse.
Whether you realize it or not, you implicitly trust dozens of people each and every day. If people did not have some level of trust in others, our society would not be able to function. In fact, we would not have a society. We would have chaos.
The most important aspect of your life is also based on the simple act of trust in a person — a person whom you cannot see, but is every bit as real as the people you see each day. His name is Jesus Christ, and your trust in Him means the difference between eternal life and eternal punishment.
