While researching this article I pondered the question how many times trust, in different forms, appears in Scripture.
In the KJV version I found it is 191 times. For me this signifies its importance as a solid support to our faith.
In my estimation without trust faith is not complete.
Worldly men, in the choice of their object, are foolish; but in their activity, and perseverance, they are often wiser than believers.
The unjust steward is not set before us as an example in cheating his master, or to justify any dishonesty, but to point out the careful ways of worldly men. It would be well if the children of light would learn wisdom from the men of the world, and would as earnestly pursue their better object.
The true riches signify spiritual blessings; and if a man spends upon himself, or hoards up what God has trusted to him, as to outward things, what evidence can he have, that he is an heir of God through Christ? The riches of this world are deceitful and uncertain. Let us be convinced that those are truly rich, and very rich, who are rich in faith, and rich toward God, rich in Christ, in the promises; let us then lay up our treasure in heaven, and expect our portion from thence.
