One can continue being merciful, one can continue being kind toward others, one can continue being good. But faithfulness requires work. Jesus will find many people who are good and kind people when he returns. But how many people who have place a daily dependent reliance in Him, especially in impossible things?
Most men will proclaim every one his own goodness: but a faithful man who can find?
Provers 20:6Douay-Rheims Bible
Many men are called merciful: but who shall find a faithful man?
English Revised Version
Most men wilt proclaim every one his own kindness: but a faithful man who can find?
World English Bible
Many men claim to be men of unfailing love, but who can find a faithful man?
|... My eyes shall be upon the faithful of the land|
|For they would not remain faithful to that |
|... Live in the land, and practice being faithful. .... ...|
|... The godly man hath perished out of the land, and there is none upright among men:|
they all lie in ... Faithful people are gone from the earth, and no one is decent ...
|The faithful few of my people will loot them|
