Like a broken tooth and a lame foot, so is confidence in an unfaithful person in a time of crisis. Proverbs 25:19
If you’ve ever had dental work of any sort you can attest, tooth pain can make your life miserable. It interferes with your ability to not only eat, but drink, think, and even communicate. You could be starving, malnourished, and emaciated, yet your crazy tooth won’t let you get so much as a decent morsel of food!
Placing our hopes, dreams, and best-laid plans in an unfaithful and unreliable person will feel just like a broken tooth. Just when you need them the most; just when you feel you’re about to starve to death and you’re so looking forward to the sustenance a good nutritious meal can provide, you can’t rely on your own tooth to allow you to eat because it’s broken…just like the promises of an unreliable friend…broken!
Today be grateful we “have a friend that stays closer than a brother.” Just by virtue of HIS NAME He is FAITHFUL!
Know therefore that the LORD thy God, he is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations; Deuteronomy 7:9
When times get tough, and others bail on you, Jesus says, “I will never leave you…I’ll be with you always.” What an awesome reassurance we have that we can call on Jesus Name and He’ll be there…always right on time.
Now that’s a promise you can sink your teeth into!
