It’s hard to trust someone that’s known to be unfaithful; unfaithful being defined as not dependable; disloyal or not adhering to vows. In fact, (Prov. 25:19) says “Confidence in an unfaithful man in the time of trouble is like a broken tooth, and a foot out of joint.” If he/she is known to be unfaithful in times when there is no pressure, what is the possibility that they will be there for you when times of trouble comes. As Christians being faithful one to another is paramount. Being faithful is something we should all strive for. Being faithful says you can be depended upon, not only in good times but especially in bad.
Thus, if we tell someone we are going to do something let’s do everything we can to keep the vow we made so it can’t be said that we are unfaithful. Think of how many marriages would have been saved if the vows that were made at the altar on one of our happiest days were kept. If we look at this thing in its simplest form many who said “I Do” on their wedding day allowed the words that they promised God and all the witnesses that were there to come to nothing, because when a difficult situation arose all the vows that were spoken were broken.
And there is no doubt that when we stood at the altar we were serious about our vows; however, we are to remain faithful to those vows not only on our wedding day, but every day after. I certainly can’t speak for anyone else, but when I stood before God and said “I do” to the woman He gave me there was an expectation that she was as serious about the vows as I was. However, the hardest part when it comes to faithfulness is getting the two to become one and agree that it is until death do us part, and we may not be where we want to be right now, but we are a work in progress. Hence, at the end of the day, there are only a few people you can really depend on, that you can really have confidence in, and the hope is that one of those is your spouse.
God Bless You
