I refuse to live with suspicion and mistrust. I’m not going to live that way. I want to trust people. I want to believe the best about people. I want to live according to Philippians 4:8 – whatever is good and decent and everything else, think on those things. I don’t want to do violence to my own spirituality. I’d much rather be taken and wounded than live with a wall up.
