Reliability

A Bible study on the importance and meaning of being reliable.

1. Copy out the following verses in your notebook. Choose one to write out on an index card and put up on your bulletin board until you have it memorized. (Deuteronomy 7:9; Titus 2:9-10; Colossians 3:23)

2. Using a dictionary, define the following words: faithful, reliable, trustworthy.

3. Make a chart to compare the consequences of unreliability or unfaithfulness, with the blessings of being faithful or reliable. Unfaithfulness: 2 Thessalonians 3:10; 1 Timothy 5:8; Matthew 3:10; Luke 19:12-26). Faithfulness: Proverbs 22:29; 27:18; 28:20; Matthew 25:34-40).

4. Read Luke 16:10-12. Make a list of some small things that you can be faithful in.

5. How is God faithful? Read the following verses and write out how God has been and is faithful to us. (Genesis 9:12,13; 17:7; Exodus 6:5; Leviticus 26:44; Deuteronomy 4:31; 7:9; Isaiah 49:7; Jeremiah 33:20,21; 1 Corinthians 1:9; 1 Thessalonians 5:24; 2 Thessalonians 3:3; 2 Timothy 2:13; Hebrews 10:23; 1 John 1:9).

6. Tell how the following people in the Bible showed faithfulness or unfaithfulness: Joseph (Genesis 39); Midwives (Exodus 1:15-21); Daniel (Daniel 1:6); Abraham’s servant (Genesis 24); Gehazi (2 Kings 5:20-27); Ten spies (Numbers 13:26-33, 14:1-4).

7. On an index card, write out what you feel you need to change to become more reliable and then write a statement of how you will do this. Put it up on your bulletin board to remind you.
