Bible Verses about Trust

Dear Brother Ron

What is a good bible verse that talks about trust? My boyfriend and I had some trusting issues and we are reading the bible and I wanted to get a verse that talks about that. Do you have any suggestions?


Dear Photolady

Most of the verses in the Bible concerning trust deal with trusting God.

2 Samuel 22:3 The God of my rock; in him will I trust: he is my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower, and my refuge, my Savior; thou savest me from violence.

If you are talking about trust between two people, you might find this helpful.

Luke 16:11 If therefore ye have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your trust the true riches?

When this verse talks about "unrighteous mammon", it is referring to the Roman god of money. In other words, if you are not trustworthy with your money (which gives only temporary satisfaction), how can you be trusted with the eternal matters of the spirit. The same could be said of other temporary satisfactions such as sex, drugs, etc. If you are easily tempted to give yourself over to temporary pleasures with no regard for long-term consequences, how can you be trusted to honor a lasting commitment? You might also find this helpful.

Genesis 2:24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

Jesus reiterated the same message.
Matthew 19:5 And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? Matthew 19:6 Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.

You and your boyfriend need to ask yourselves whether this relationship is what God wants for the two of you or whether it is merely something you find temporarily convenient and enjoyable. If you and your boyfriend truly love each other and have decided to make a commitment to each other, you will value your commitment more than any momentary diversions.

Trust is the basis of any long-term relationship. I trust my wife to act in my best interest and she has the same trust in me. If the two of you do not have that same kind of trust, then I have concerns about your relationship.

Best always
