Dependability is a wonderful thing. I like it when I can count on my computer to work. That's one reason I went over to the Mac world with computers. I like dependability, consistency, or some call it faithfulness.

Whether you like McDonalds or not, you know that their Big Mac is going to be a Big Mac. Their fries are going to be the same as the last time you were there and ate them. They have made a mint on consistency of service at a low price.

Proverbs mentions the importance of dependability using teeth or a foot as an example. Solomon wrote, "Like a bad tooth or a lame foot is reliance on the unfaithful in times of trouble." (Proverbs 25:19) Man, I have had terrible tooth aches. Ouch! And I have pulled muscles and have sprained my ankle. That hurt too.

To be consistently on time is good. To be consistent in attitude and mood is good. To be consistent in word and deed is good. To be consistent in work productivity is good. To be consistent in our walk and service to the Lord is good. The list goes on and on......

God is consistent. He is faithful. That has to be one of my most compelling reasons for serving and loving God. He is faithfully consistent.

Now, what about you and me? How consistent are we?


  1. Bro. Milton:
    I just wanted to say that I enjoy your blog very much! I am a member of the Church of God in Montgomery, AL and look forward to all of your inspirational posts. Regarding the riddles you had in an earlier post, I have one that Mrs. Wanda will like....did you know that it is Scriptural for the men to do the dishes? I love this one, 2 Kings 21:13, "I will wipe Jerusalem as a man wipeth a dish, wiping it, and turning it upside down"
    May God bless you and your family,
    Amy in Alabama

  2. Thanks, Amy. Wanda will really like that one. Ha!
