The Blessing of faithfulness

Mat 25:21 KJ2000 His lord said unto him, Well done, you good and faithful servant: you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things: enter into the joy of your lord.

In the book of Matthew chapter 25, Jesus gives us a profound parable on the blessing of faithfulness.

In this story a businessman commits talents and responsibilities to three men. He then goes on a journey. When he returns, he asks them to account for their stewardship. Two out of three are commended for their faithfulness. One is rebuked for his lack of faithfulness.

In other words what did you do with what I committed to you? Did you take care of my goods? Where you responsible? What was your attitude toward what was committed to your charge?

People of God, Jesus is giving us a kingdom principle that will change your life in everything you do.

Whether on your job, in church, paying your bills, a relationship, or a ministry. You will reap what you sow in regards to bring faithful.

Greater areas of responsibility are always committed to faithful men and women who go the extra mile.

It’s amazing that many people ignore this Kingdom concept. But Jesus told two of the servants the following :

Mat 25:21 KJ2000 His lord said unto him, Well done, you good and faithful servant: you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things: enter into the joy of your lord.

Jesus also confirms it in Luke 16:

Luke 16:10 KJ2000 He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much.

The text tells us that men and women who are faithful in little things, will be faithful in many things.

This is a Kingdom key to promotion in Christ and even on your job! Your talent, knowledge, skills, and know how will only take you so far. Faithfulness will open greater doors of opportunity!

The key factor that separates the mediocre from the excellent is faithfulness. The key factor that separates the best from the good is faithfulness.

The Apostle Paul even said in 1 Cor 4:2 KJ2000, Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful.

In other words, the requirement for stewards or one who manages the resources of another is to be faithful, consistent, steadfast, and about your business.

When you are unfaithful, you disqualify yourself from the blessing that comes from being faithful. Today, think about ways in which you can be faithful in your service to God!

Because when you do, you will reap a great blessing! So the question today is, “Are you faithful?” God bless!
