Elul 11: Trust

When someone starts a sentence with
“trust me”
or
“believe me,”
you should question.

Does that mean we shouldn’t trust him when he doesn’t say, “trust me?”
That we shouldn’t believe her when she doesn’t say, “believe me?”

Or do those phrases signal that what is about to follow is a lie.

Trust is based on action.
Observed integrity.
Verifiable sincerity.
Reliability.
Competency.

Don’t tell me.
Show me.
