Being faithful and trustworthy (the meaning of earnest) is certainly a responsibility of every Christian. Keeping our promises is the fruit of being earnest. Whom should we pattern ourselves after in order to be earnest? There is only one worthy source, and of course that is to God Himself through His word and by the leading of the Holy Spirit.
It is very easy to make a promise. It is sometimes difficult to keep that promise. If we can but consider how much we love our children and desire to please them by keeping our promises, we can perhaps catch a glimpse of the love of God.
Selfish motives, cares of the world or just plain unforeseen circumstances may prevent us from keeping a promise. Isn’t it reassuring to know that none of these things can prevent God from keeping His promises? Promises that cannot be broken are ours. How great is that?
"Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises; that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world…" 2 Peter 1:4
