The Difference Between Trust and Faith

Often, we get confused on the difference between Trust and Faith…

Allow me to clear this difference with an illustration.

Once at a circus, there was this rope walker who showed us his amazing skills by walking tightrope-walkeron a rope from one end to the other. When he reached the other end, there was a huge sound of applause by the audience. The rope walker simply smiled. This time, he decided to blindfold himself and walk on the rope. Everyone was amazed upon him reaching the other end without falling off and gave him a bigger round of applause. He then asked the audience if they trusted him and the reply came YES!, we do! since they now trusted him on his magnificent skills, he now decided to carry a chair on his shoulders being blindfolded and walk the rope. Upon him reaching the end of the rope, there was a standing ovation and a louder round of applause for him. The audience was once again amazed by the rope walker.

He now said, you all trust me! He then asked “Who is willing to sit on that chair above my shoulders?”…there was pure silence!! He said the person who is willing to take that chance is the one who has complete Faith in me. 

“Faith is being sure of what we hope for & certain of what we do not see.”

-Heb 11:1
