Some Thoughts on Trust Accounts
The word “Trust” is used in many ways.
The word may represent belief, confidence, conviction, faith, care, custody, guardianship, or even liability.
The word can be used to show action, such as accepting, believing in, having faith in, relying on, assuming, or even presuming.
The word has its opposites, of course. I state them in just three words: skepticism, doubt and distrust.
The word “Account,” to me, means a storehouse with a ledger. It is a place where I deposit things that have value to me.
The phrase ‘Trust Account” follows as a place where I deposit trust, all of those aforementioned “things,” or perchance others deposit them in my account, also.
This account is just like a bank account; it sometimes has very little trust in it. It sometimes is overdrawn—that makes communication and relationships very difficult.
When I am careful to make deposits on a regular basis, it grows and compounds daily, thus making the withdrawals needed for relationships and communications easy transactions.
When the account balance is low—that’s when distrust, skepticism and doubt arise.
The depositing of trust in our own account and the opening of new accounts are of great importance.
The process of trust—a vital process—is a difficult one to keep in a positive accounting posture.
We all withdraw from our trust account, as well as deposit to it. The withdrawals have to do with doubts, questions and the like concerning ourselves and others.
I suppose all these thoughts are senseless unless one has faith in the depositor and the holder of the trust account.
