Chinese Characters (5)

What kind of people do you believe and trust? I trust and believe people who tell me the truth and do what they say they will do. If someone tells me a lie or doesn’t keep a promise, I don’t trust them again in the future.
Our character for today is the most common Chinese word for “faith.” It can sometimes mean “to believe.” The left side means “man” or “person” and the right side means “word.” When a person does what he says he will do, we know we can believe and trust him.
Our Bible Reading today shows us that we can believe God all the time. “The Lord helps those who are in trouble. The Lord loves those who do right” (verse 8b). Sometimes we cannot depend on other people. They hurt us or fail us. But God is faithful forever!
No matter what problems you are facing, you can rely on God to help you. Trust Him and depend on His faithfulness today!
