What is Faithfulness?

April 04, 2011

“Your mercy and loving-kindness, O Lord, extend to the skies, and Your faithfulness to the clouds.” – Psalm 36: 5

There are not many qualities greater than faithfulness:

A faithful soldier who is always trusted to carry out the mission, even willing to sacrifice his life.

An employer that is always dependable, trustworthy, and reliable. They get the job done.

A spouse that you completely trust- who is loyal and loving to the end.

A vendor or service provider that always comes through. And if they drop the ball, they go the second mile to get it right.

Don’t you love folks like that? It’s good to show your appreciation. If you feel you are in short supply of faithful people, there is one you can know personally, who is always faithful. His name is God. The old hymn says, “Great is Thy faithfulness, O God my Father…”

He never changes.

He never fails.

He’s the same yesterday, today, and forever.
