I just finished reading a book and part of it brought you to mind: The book talks about trust, which is. More to the point, the Holy Spirit is talking to the main character in the story and this is what is said about trust:

“…Mackenzie, you cannot produce trust, just as you cannot ‘do’ humility. It either is or is not. Trust is the fruit of a relationship in which you know you are loved. Because you do not know that I love you, you cannot trust me.”

Notice the Holy Spirit didn’t say “because you do not love me”, rather, it is not an act of love FROM us, but rather an act of love FOR us that we do not know.

In light of this wisdom, trust among humans is irrelevant when we trust God. If we can TRULY trust God, then we inherently trust humanity. The book is “THE SHACK” written by Wm Paul Young. A GREAT read if you get the chance.
