In our relationships, we value trustworthiness in people. We want to be able to rely on them.
The Holy Spirit grows this virtue in us as we follow Jesus, being obedient to God and His purposes.
God is the One we can trust for everything. When friends and family let us down–and they will–we know God is faithful even when we and others fail to be all we could be.
“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.” 1 John 1:9
Growing in the other Fruit of the Spirit, we learn to be trustworthy. We are faithful to God and begin to improve our earthly relationships because God is teaching us a better way.
