Hebrews 2:10-18

Who Do You Trust?

By Lois Parker Edstrom

Where I live deer come into my yard every day. One deer has become my pet. She eats apple slices from my hand and licks the apple juice from my fingers. She lets me pet her nose and forehead and ears. I can tell by the way she looks at me that she trusts me.

Last winter she was gone for sometime and I wondered what had happened to her. This spring she came back for apples, and guess what!? She brought a baby with her; an adorable little spotted fawn.

This was such an exciting experience because it meant that this wild creature trusted me enough to bring her baby. She knows I won’t harm her or the baby. She can rely on me to treat her well.

Let’s talk about the qualities a person must have for you to trust them. (Encourage comments from the children.) A trustworthy person is someone who does what they say they will do. You can trust a person who is honest, strong, and sure. A trustworthy person always wants the best for you and would never harm you. We could say that love is wrapped up in trust.

We learn, by studying the Bible that God loves us and wants the best for us. When Jesus lived on earth he said, “I will put my trust in (God)” (2:13).

That seems like good advice.
