What is trust:- It is a feeling of faith and complete confidence in something or someone. I think basing on the definition it is an essential in any community and one has to strive to earn it. To win trust of a person you must be transparent, honest, reliable and God fearing.
Everyone must take a leap of faith. Stephen Covey remarked “Trust is the highest form of human motivation. It brings out the very best in people”
According to the Revised Standard Version Bible in the Old Testament it is mentioned 147times and in the New Testament, 134times. This is symbolic of the importance of trust.
The moral behind the exhibition of trust in the Bible is an appeal to you to work hard to attain peoples trust.
Trust is earned, respect is given and loyalty is demonstrated. Betrayal of any of these is to lose the three. Impart trust in your Education, friendships and family with such an important virtue you will surely excel meritiously in all fields of life.
One secret about me, is trust in the school education system made me excel if I did why not you?
Proverbs 4:13 says “Always remember what you have learnt. Your education is your life, guard it well”
The time is now for you to quest for trust in life. Once you find out what real trust is then you will live a happy life. Remember trust should never be broken as it causes pain, immense sadness and anger. Once you break ones’ trust it’s the hardest thing to regain.
TO MY BELOVED SENIOR SIX CANDIDATES, time year round you have woken up in the wee hours of the night to read. Now is the time for the Lord to make you sail smoothly to the land of victory as you excel. Trust God in all you do he has great plans of prosperity for all, All the best of luck.
I will end my speech by quoting William Shakespeare
“LOVE ALL, TRUST a FEW, DO WRONG TO NONE”
EXTEND YOUR HORIZONS
