"Nope, nu uh. I'm not doing it." David said, crossing his arms.
"But why not? You do realize that you brought this up, right?" Jesus asked, dragging the question.
David looked at the ground and frowned. It was very idiotic to bring up to Jesus that he did not trust Him...now Jesus was "making" him do a trust fall.
"Jesus, You do know that this is not useful at all...right?" David asked.
"How do you know that?" Jesus asked, smirking.
David sighed and turned around.
"Jesus, that's the thing...I didn't know that you were going to do this...You know that I hate trust falls, the person behind me always drops me. Even after they catch me, they just drop my head after my fall. Remember how I had to go to the hospital because of this stupid stunt?"
Jesus did not seem moved by David's almost convincing arguement.
"Do you want to trust Me or not?" Jesus asked, stretching His arms out.
David sighed frustratedly and turned back around, crossing his arms again.
"How do I know that You won't drop me? You're too far away from me and-"
"Hush, David. Simply fall back and let Me do the rest."
David was moved by Jesus' Words and he closed his eyes.
"Do You promise that you'll catch me?" David asked.
"Fall back and see for yourself," Jesus said softly and patiently.
David huffed. He clutched his crucifix; what if this wasn't Jesus? What if this was the devil in disguise, and if he did fall back, he would fall in to hell instead of his hardwood floor?
"Jesus, I trust in You..." He mumbled to himself five times.
Finally, he fell back. He panicked slightly when he felt his body almost touch the ground, but he felt strong and secure hands on the back of his shoulders. He opened his eyes and saw Jesus smiling at him.
"See? I knew you could do it," He laughed, lifting David to his feet.
David, still bewildered, stared at Jesus' Hands. Jesus put His arm around David and said, "See that small demonstration of your trust in Me? If you show more of your trust for Me, know that you can do many good things! For the person who trusts in Me is never disappointed."
