The root cause of all worries is lack of trust.
Maybe we have a problem with trust because we got burnt. Whatever the cause of our disappointment, here is the bottom-line: We need to trust again. We have to trust someone or we are just like dust in the wind, blown up whenever a storm front approaches. Trust is as essential as oil to machinery. Well-oiled machinery runs smoothly, so does any relationship that is built on trust.
We have a God who entrusted Himself into our hands. Think about that for a minute.
The Son of God came as vulnerable as a tiny embryo placed into the womb of a teenage girl who at the time lived in a society that not only frowned upon babies born out of wedlock but who also acted upon it with a vengeance by carrying out the death sentence after such conviction. Despite the precariousness of the situation, Jesus trusted His Father in Heaven that He would see them through. He also trusted Mary and Joseph to keep Him safe, and they did. Jesus was barely born when the family had to leave for Egypt to escape the wrath of an insane monarch who slaughtered all newborn babies in His vicinity.
Three is a prime number, a whole number whose only factors are 1 and itself. The Trinity is such an indivisible unity. And yet, the Trinity separated because they were willing to let go of each other. When the Father let go of His cherished Son something wonderful happened: God became man. It seems that Jesus felt it was a badge of honor to become a human being. The gospel writers report that Jesus loved to refer to Himself as the Son of Man.
If the Trinity is as generous as that, we too should be generous and open our homes and hearts to the people knocking on our doors. There are reasons why things happen. We are here for a reason, but we have to stop distrusting to open up and see the opportunities coming our way.
May the Trinity be our inspiration today as we go about our business!
