“Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful.”
~ 1 Corinthians 4:2
A faithful person will stick with something through thick and thin. An unfaithful person will quit on something when they no longer feel excited about what they are doing. Faithfulness must be developed in our lives. Many of the assignments that God gives us start out with excitement, but after the excitement wears off it’s faithfulness that keeps us going. Faithfulness keeps us doing what is right because it is right.
Unfaithful people need some kind of feeling to keep them going; they need to feel excited or they’ll quit. Faithful people only need to know that it is the right thing to be doing to keep them going. Unfaithful people believe that when the excitement has left something that it is a sign for them to stop doing it. Faithful people don’t ever stop doing what they’re doing unless they have definite direction from the Lord to stop.
One thing is for sure, if we’re going to be faithful we can never be led by our emotions. Make up your mind today that you are going to be a faithful person. The book of Proverbs tells us that “a faithful person shall abound with blessings!”
