Many a man claims to have unfailing love, but a faithful man who can find? Proverbs 20:6
Good Morning Everyone and welcome to ‘Dee’s Thoughts.’ Would you say you were a person that others can depend on? We would all like to think that is true wouldn’t we?
Faithfulness hinges upon what we value as important combined with commitment. We humans have a powerful tendency to be faithful to what we think is truly important, such as; a family name, spouse, friendship etc.
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. The ability to function with such stability and reliability helps others to trust us to act responsibly.
Faithfulness is the characteristic of the man who is reliable. Webster's New World Dictionary defines faithful as "maintaining allegiance; constant; loyal; marked by or showing a strong sense of duty or responsibility.
Good intentions though are not enough. People who make promises but don't follow through with them are unreliable. The dependable person keeps his/her promises, functions responsibly, and acts predictably. Dependable people have stable marriages and secure relationships.
QUOTE: God does not begin by asking us about our ability, but only about our availability, and if we than prove our dependability, he will increase our capability. (Neal A. Maxwell)
The faithfulness of God is so great that we can totally rely upon Him to keep His Word. The reason we trust God to keep His promises is because He has proven His faithfulness over and over.. He is completely dependable, trustworthy, and responsible. He has never forgotten a promise or neglected His children.
I don’t know about you but I want the Lord to be able to say to me, “well done good and faithful servant. I hope that is your desire and goal as well. Have a wonderful day,
