"If our society needs to reemphasise the virtue of honesty, it certainly needs to place great importance on dependability. Dependability has taken a decided backseat to personal desire or convenience. ‘I’ll keep that commitment if it’s convenient’ seems to be the attitude of the age … God wants us to be dependable even when it costs us (Ps 15:4). This is what distinguishes godly faithfulness from the ordinary dependability of secular society."
