Share words which are similar in some ways and yet different in some other ways.


For example, what is the difference between trust and belief?


belief and trust

A person started to walk on a rope tied between two tall towers at several hundred feet above the ground. He is slowly walking balancing a long stick in his hands. He has his son sitting on his shoulders.

Everyone down were watching him in bated breath and were tensed. He slowly reached the second tower. Everyone clapped, whistled and welcomed him. They shook hands and took selfies.

He asked the crowd "do you all think I can walk back on the same rope now from this side to that side?". Crowd shouted "Yes, Yes, you can". Do you believe me he asked. They said yes, yes we are ready to bet on you.

He said okay, can any one of you sit on my shoulder; I will take you to the other side safely.

Everyone became quite. There was stunned silence.

Belief is different. Trust is different. For Trust you need total surrender.

This is what we are lacking towards God in today's world.

We believe in God. But we don't trust Him.

We believe whatever happens in life is good for us. But we don't trust it completely and complain when things happen in unexpected ways.

What do you belive in and who do you trust? Share here.
