To venable (verb): To randomly muse upon this and that.

…and that is how it should be. Let us consider this Scripture from Nehemiah 13:12-13

All Judah brought the tithes of grain, new wine and olive oil into the storerooms.  I put Shelemiah the priest, Zadok the scribe, and a Levite named Pedaiah in charge of the storerooms and made Hanan son of Zakkur, the son of Mattaniah, their assistant, because they were considered trustworthy. They were made responsible for distributing the supplies to their fellow Levites.

The storeroom needed looking after, so who was to be chosen to do this? It was those who were considered trustworthy of course. When you want someone to do a job you need someone reliable to do it. This is only reasonable because if you want a job done you want it done. Those who have proven themselves reliable are the ones you can trust to do it.

Alas I fear, reliable people are a scarce commodity. Many will prefer their own convenience over fulfilling a duty. Accordingly they prove themselves to be unreliable.

So what about me? How do I match up?  Oh Philip remember that you follow the ultimately reliable One; Jesus
