God is as steady as an eternal rock, caring, providing, and faithful, like a priest. He created many men in that image. We will call Him Mr. Steady, in the middle, not given to extremes. The Steady Man does not make snap decisions or spend his last dime on a new idea, and he doesn't try to tell other people what to do.
He avoids controversy. He doesn't invent the light bulb like Mr. Visionary, but he will be the one to build the factory and manage the assembly line that produces the light bulbs. He does not jump to the front of the airplane to take a razor knife away from a terrorist, unless he is encouraged to do so by Mr. Command.
He would never lead a revolution against the government or the church. He will quietly ignore hypocrisy in others. He builds the oil tankers, farms the soil, and quietly raises his family. As a general rule, he will be faithful until the day he dies in the same bed he has slept for forty or fifty years. This man is content with the wife of his youth.
When you are married to a man who is steady and cautious and you have a bit of the impatient romantic in you, you may not see his worth and readily honor him. You may be discontent because he is slow and cautious to take authority or make quick decisions. A bossy woman sees her husband's lack of hasty judgement and calls her steady husband wishy-washy.
His steadiness makes him the last to change, so he seems to be a follower because he's seldom out front forming up the troops. There is no exciting rush in him, just a slow steady climb with no bells or whistles. You wish he would just make up his mind and that he would take a stand in the church. He seems to just let people use him. There are times you wish he would boldly tell you what to do so you would not have to carry all the burden of decision making.
