We have mentioned trust and forgiveness quite a few times over the past year. I have sometimes gotten the two confused. However, I can see where forgiveness is about us and trust is about the other person. Forgiveness is what we give to someone, it does not affect them though, and it is all about us. Forgiveness deals with the past and should be quick and complete. We should live a lifestyle of forgiveness. Trust, on the other hand, is about the other person. Trust deals with the future. It is build by the other person and does take time to build or re-build, but it can be done. I see sometimes where we get trust and forgiveness confused or think they are the same thing. They do work together, but they are not the same. Forgiveness is for you and trust is for them. Forgiveness must come quickly, even if they don’t ask for it or even know about it. It is not about them; it is for you. Trust is a slower process for the most part. Trust is the bond that holds things together. Trust is for the other person in your life. Both are very important and must be maintained at all times. Trust and Forgiveness are definitely power twins.
