Be Faithful

And the things you have heard from me among many witnesses, commit these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.
2 Timothy 2:2

God is not impressed with our talents or giftedness. He does not admire individuals because they have charisma or because they have achieved great success. God looks for faithfulness. He is interested in our fidelity to Him. He wants to know that we are loyal to Him no matter what.

He does want us to be faithful with the gifts and talents He has given us. He also desires for us to develop our skills whatever they are. He wants us to use all that we have for the furtherance of His kingdom and for His glory.

God is looking for men, women, and children who will be faithful to Him. As we are faithful with little things, He will give us more to steward. Like an apprentice learning a new craft, let's apply ourselves to the things that the Lord has entrusted us with. After we are faithful for a time, he will promote us so that we are more useful to Him. Let's also remember to be faithful to one another. If we will journey down this path, one day we will hear Jesus say, “Well done my good and faithful servant.” Then all our hard work and sacrifice will be worth it.
