Vice: Unreliable

Pr 20:6 "Many a man claims to have unfailing love, but a faithful man who can find?" This is particularly the case with regards to marriage vows. They vow "till death do us part", but end up parting prior to the death of their spouse. And then they go on to make the same vow to someone else. And likewise of women it is written,"I found one upright man among a thousand, but not one upright woman among them all." Ecc 7:28 and "A wife of noble character who can find?" Pr 31:10

People are characteristically unreliable, both men and women. It's a weakness of the flesh. What should be our attitude towards the unreliable? "I look on the faithless with loathing, for they do not obey your word." Ps 119:158 For example, "Saul died because he was unfaithful to the LORD; he did not keep the word of the LORD and even consulted a medium for guidance." 1Ch 10:13 Let us faithfully seek counsel of the Lord rather than listening to the world, rather than simply boasting of how faithful we are.
