Moroni 8:18 -- On Change and Unchange

"For I know that God is not a partial God, neither a changeable being; but he is unchangeable from all eternity to all eternity."
Moroni 8:18

In our unending search for consistency and "fairness" in this life, it seems like the only place we could ever look for those seemingly impossible ideals would be God.  Unchangeable... not in terms of not listening or being compassionless, but in terms of being always there, always reliable, and always, always loving us.  Always staying true to his principles, and always working for the right.  Never taking shortcuts, never trying to work around a problem, but instead intent on solving it.  He has reached the point where he doesn't need to change: Perfection.  And he works with us so that we can see and work on emulating that perfect perspective, that incredible patience, that consistent and empowering love.
Today, as things around us remain inconsistent, and as we learn to change and become more like the unchangeable ideal, let's look to God for our lessons in consistency, kindness, and implacable, overwhelming love.
