Be faithful

11 May 2022
‘You were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things.’

In Scripture, to be faithful means to be steady, stable, dependable, and consistent. Do these attributes describe you? They should, because faithfulness is very important to God. ‘A faithful person will be richly blessed’ (Proverbs 28:20 NIV). Jesus said, ‘Many are called, but few chosen’ (Matthew 20:16 NKJV). Why is that? Because talent might open the door and get us the job, but it's our character and faithfulness that will keep us there.

When it comes to faithfulness, God will test us in two ways:

1) Our faithfulness in someone else’s vision. ‘If you are not faithful with other people’s things, why should you be trusted with things of your own?’ (Luke 16:12 NLT). If we’re critical, caustic, complaining, competitive, or constantly comparing ourselves with others, we won't be fit and ready for what God has in mind for us. Faithfulness calls for serving with love and humility.

2) Our faithfulness in small things. ‘The master said, “Well done, my good and faithful servant. You have been faithful in handling this small amount, so now I will give you many more responsibilities… To those who use well what they are given, even more will be given…But from those who do nothing, even what little they have will be taken away”’ (Matthew 25:23, 29 NLT). God wants to know He can trust us, and we prove it by how well we serve others and by our faithfulness in small things.

These are biblical principles that don’t just work in spiritual things, but in everyday life too! So today, take a few moments to prayerfully ask yourself the question, ‘Am I faithful?’ When you are, be ready for God to do some amazing things with you!

 

What Now?

What’s the smallest, most menial task you need to do today? Try doing it with an attitude of excellence and faithfulness, as if God’s entrusted you with great riches and responsibility.
