I still believe in the goodness of people. I still believe that people are honest, and take what they say at face value. I still am able to open myself up to another person, and let them see my heart. Why? Why have I not been scarred from a life of being taken advantage of, manipulated and deceived? Its because of my relationship with God!
Because God's spirit lives in me, I have the same ability and potential to trust as He does. It doesn't mean I walk into situations naive. But rather, I listen to God's Spirit within me, and act wisely. Its just common sense to be cautious. But cautious and guarded are to very different things. I am so grateful not only to have this opportunity to trust others, but that I can confidently say I still trust people!
