Trust is a commodity that we would love to have immediately. The problem is, trust is not a trinket that can be brought or sold like a phony badge of merit. Instead, it is a rare and valuable commodity like gold, platinum, and a large diamond dug from the earth.
Trust is a precious gem that must be earned by months, even years of faithful love and service. And thus, once earned, should be prized above gold. Because it only takes one foolish act, one unguarded moment, to break it.
And sadly, trust once lost sometimes may never be found again.
