“A faithful man shall abound with many blessings:  but he that maketh haste to be rich shall not be innocent.” Proverbs 28:20 KJV

I love the way my son at age 4 defines faithful.  He says and I quote: “Faithful means to stick to it!”  Such a simple way to explain a concept that many adults have a hard time acting out in their lives.  To be faithful really “means to stick to it”.  It means we stick to the mate we have chosen in marraige.  To stick to the job we have begun.  To stick to what we have started until its completion.  Simple concept, but not easy excecution. 

Many excuses are used for not being faithful.  I don’t have the time.  I don’t have the help I need.  I don’t have the money.  I think it’s just time for a change.  The common thread I see sewn through excuses is “I”.  “I” I believe is the root of it all, for when you really contemplate your level of faithfulness in any area, and where you see your faith points lacking is when you see yourself getting in the way.

Selfishness is really what keeps people from being faithful.  It becomes an all about them thing.  If it is not pleasing to them to continue, then they give themselves an out, but to be blessed in riches, in health, in relationships a person must remain faithful.  And know that sometimes things don’t happen over night.

Be wise.
