26 Jan


There was a Collie named King. King’s master, Del Plato, was close to the dog. Del Plato was killed in a car accident. King stood by as the casket was lowered into the ground.

Every day King went to the cemetery to visit his master’s grave. If he was tied up, he’d break the ropes to get to the grave. We live in an age of little faithfulness.

It spills over to the church. Believers make commitments to help out; but when they don’t feel like it anymore, they stop. When it costs something to follow the Lord or requires something to maintain a marriage, they give up.

When it means being unpopular with the crowd, they compromise. We can learn a lot from a dog. The dog stayed devoted to his master and by his master’s grave. “Don’t we owe more faithfulness to Jesus” – at least as much as that of a dog?

Let’s stay by His grave, and bear the reproach of the cross. Let’s be faithful to Him and each other. The Lord is the Master of masters and deserves more devotion than the faithfulness of a dog.

Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him and he will do this: Psalm 37:5

Have you been tempted to give up? Today, renew your commitment to do whatever you said you would do.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,
