Reliable! Liable means responsible. Re means over and over again.
I’m wondering if someone’s listening who’s a saint of re-liability? If you are, I can’t resist the chance to say two things. The first? Thank you!
Thank you teachers for the countless Sunday school lessons prepared and delivered with tenderness. Thank you senior saints for a generation of prayer. Thank you missionaries for your bravery in sharing the timeless truth. Thank you preachers. You thought we weren’t listening, but we were.
Thanks to all of you who practice on Monday what you hear on Sunday. It’s on the back of your fidelity that the Gospel rides. You are reliable! You get the job done.
I said I had two things to say. What’s the second? Keep pitching! Your Hall of Fame award is just around the corner. —Max Lucado
This is encouraging. It seems our “goals” need to include this “stay to it-ness”…being reliable. The world needs it. God wants it. He is reliable to and for us. So, God will help us to stand strong. Perhaps God is also calling us to stand with someone who is struggling to do the same…be reliable. Stick to it.
