Read Prov. 20:6
Faithfulness is like a rare & precious. It is difficult to find a real such gem, though there are many who will offer their virtues as a substitute.
Moses, however was that type of man. “And Moses verily was faithful in all his house” (Heb. 3:5). So was Abraham. “So then they which be of faith are blessed w/faithful Abraham (Gal. 3:9). Moses & Abraham were full of faith in God’s Word. Faithful means full of faith.
God is not impressed w/those who boast of themselves & their qualifications or who belittle others. “It is not good to eat much honey, so for men to search their own glory is not glory” (Prov. 25:27). Actions speak louder than words, & it is better to let one’s works speak for themselves. “Yea, a man may say, Thou has faith, & I have works, show me thy faith by/my works” (James 2:18). The rare quality of faithfulness, firm & reliable commitment to one’s convictions & responsibilities, in accordance w/God’s Word & God’s leading, is proved in practice rather than proclamation. May God help us to be faithful servants, for “it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful”(1Cor. 4:2). It is quality, not quantity, of service that God measures. Faithfulness, is required.
There is one glorious promise regarding faithfulness, not our faithfulness, but the faithfulness of our Saviour. “If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful, he cannot deny himself “(2 Tim. 2:13). “For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith (literally, “faithfulness”) of God w/out effect? God forbid, yea, let God be (found) true, but every man a liar”(Rom. 3:3-4).
God bless all & love to all!!
