To be found faithful in a faithless world is a wonderful thing. Unfortunately for some, this noble characteristic has been supplanted by an inordinate affection for self-interest. Not too many years ago, the cause of the greater good was prevalent in society. The focus was more collective with an understanding that functional and productive societies were in many ways interdependent. This resulted in committed individuals who took pride in everything from work to relationships to honoring financial obligations.
Today, we live in a world of litigation and mistrust. This is nothing new as even Solomon declared, “Most men will proclaim every one his own goodness: but a faithful man who can find?” (Proverbs 20:6). As Bible believers we need not only recognize the value of faithfulness, but embrace its powerful tenets. This will serve us well in all of our dealings. Our business dealings will be blessed and our relationships will flourish. Most of all we will please our Master. The ultimate promise of faithfulness is to hear Him say, “Well done, thou good and faithful servant”.
