Good Morning Everyone and welcome to “Dee’s Thoughts”. I so enjoy hearing from you, keep the notes coming. As a reminder, we have started on Monday’s at Emmanuel Fellowship a new class called “Running Against The Wind”. You can come in at any time so if you are interested it is on Monday mornings from 9:30-11:30.
I am reminded this morning just how important it is to me to be a dependable person, how about you? What does it mean to be dependable? Definition—Quote: Dependability is a character trait that is shown by a person who has a habit of being trustworthy and reliable in word and behavior to do what is right.
There are many things in life that are considered dependable, or faithful. The sun rises every morning, and sets every evening. The tide comes in, and the tide goes out. The government taxes and spends, and then taxes and spends some more. You can count on it. The wisest man who ever lived, Solomon, asked a profound question in Proverbs30:6 it says, Many a man claims to have unfailing love, but a faithful man who can find?
My question to you is this, are you a person other’s can depend on, do you keep your promises? To be dependable does not mean “we have to make everything right or have all the answers”, it just means we do what we say we will do and live a life of honesty! The best that we can do is learn from our mistakes and try to improve ourselves as individuals. Being a trustworthy person is difficult, but it is often the kind of character that other people want to be around and aspire to be.
Let us be that person.
