"Our Lord never put His trust in any person. Yet He was never suspicious, never bitter, and never lost hope for anyone, because He put His trust in God first. He trusted absolutely in what God's grace could do for others. If I put my trust in human beings first, the end result will be my despair and hopelessness toward everyone. I will become bitter because I have insisted that people be what no person can ever be--absolutely perfect and right. Never trust anything in yourself or in anyone else, except the grace of God." --Oswald Chambers, from My Utmost for His Highest.
