Faithfulness

George McDonald once said, “To be trusted is a greater compliment than to be loved.” Take a moment to think through this statement.

You can love a person, but do you trust that person with your life, your heart, and all that is included in your life? Many times, we are careful to say the right things and not allow those around us to see who we really are. We don’t want people to see our flaws or to know about our failures because we think they may not love or approve of us.

Faithfulness is an even deeper issue because it requires being faithful even when we may not agree with the popular view. It also means being loyal to Christ and following His precepts even when the world’s view is anything but His.

Today, faithfulness is viewed as an old-fashioned word. Many times, we find words like team player, champion, leadership potential, and high energy have replaced words like faithful as an important factor in the employment world. If you step into a marketing meeting of a large corporation, more than likely faithful will not be a buzzword used for a new campaign.

There was a time when a man’s word was his bond—when trustworthiness was more important than wealth, fame, or popularity. It seems that the days are gone when promises were kept and friends were faithful.

Yet, God calls each one of us to be faithful to Him and to one another. Faithfulness is evidence of a humble heart that is turned toward God in adoration and devotion.

Are you seeking to be faithful to God first and then to what He has given you here on earth? Learn to be faithful and His love and goodness will also flow from your life.

Let love and faithfulness never leave you. … Then you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man (Proverbs 3:3-4).
