In the town of Borgo San Lorenzo, Italy, this monument stands as a silent tribute to the faithfulness of one called, Fido, meaning “faithful one,” in Latin. Each day this dog would accompany his owner to the bus stop and then meet him there again at its close. But everything changed in 1945 when the owner died in a city-wide bombing. Even so, Fido would faithfully continue his trips to the bus stop. This continued for the next fourteen years until the day he died, waiting at that bus stop.
Today’s verse describes a faithfulness that has no equal. The faithfulness of the Lord endures forever. His love for His own never fails and is perfectly expressed in His unending faithful commitment. There is no waning. There are no breaks or interruptions. His faithfulness has no end as He is eternal and unchanging. Praising Him is the very least we can do in response to such incredible faithfulness!
There is nothing that I can rely on as sure, steady and consistent as His love. I waver and I am fickle but His faithfulness and commitment to me are solid. It is the foundation to my life and without it I would be utterly lost. I can live in reliance on His faithfulness (Psalm 26:3). His love gives me purpose. His love gives motivation to live each day. His love is my support when everything around me is falling apart. Thankfully, His love is faithful and will never change.
Thank you Lord, that I can count on Your faithful love today, and tomorrow.
