Our currency keeps mentioning the idea of trust. It’s printed on every coin and bill we spend, borrow or lend. Of course, the emphasis there not on trust itself, but the object of the trust: God. Yet, the subject is still trust. It does make sense: there must be someone in whom we trust.
What does it mean to trust? It means to place our dependence in something or someone bigger or better than themselves. The trust is not in the money, but in the One who provides everything, including the resources for our lives. If our trust somehow tends toward the money itself, we are immediately on the wrong track. The trust is valuable in itself, but also must be in the right place. There is no better place then our Creator.
So, sometimes when the money talks, it’s okay to listen.
