Trust and Love God, and Limit Your Trust in Man
It is easy to have the viewpoint that if you love someone, you also trust them. This may be our emotional response to trust and love, but the Bible teaches us that this is wrong. In human relationships love and trust do not go together. We are to love everyone, but our trust should be reserved for God. God is the only one that we should absolutely trust. Trust is dependent on someone's intentions and ability to fulfill their promises. God is the only one that has the intention and ability to fulfill all of His promises. Humans may have good intentions, but the do not have the capability to fulfill their promises in all cases. See commentary and scriptures below for more on what the Bible says about trust and love.

Trusting Others More Than God Will Bring Shame and Confusion.
The Bible teaches that we should trust God before we trust anyone. This includes love ones, people in authority, our livelihood, or anything that we may respect or idolize. No one but God can fulfill all their promises. Totally relying on anything else will bring us shame and confusion.
See Scripture Commentary. Isaiah 30:3 advises us on how trusting others more than God will bring us shame and confusion.
