Proverbs 28:20 (NIV)
A faithful person will be richly blessed,
but one eager to get rich will not go unpunished.
Being faithful. Why is it so hard? Our daily life pulls us in so many directions. When I focus on just one thing, I feel as if I'm neglecting all the other things in my life - so much to do and so little time to do it in. We must prioritize, but what and who seem to be in flux everyday.
There is a secret to getting it 'all' done. It's not magic but it is mysterious.
Did I get your attention? How you might ask, is being faithful a way to accomplish more? I don't know exactly why it works, I just know what happens in my own life when I am faithful.
"One who is faithful in a very little is also faithful in much, and one who is
dishonest in a very little is also dishonest in much.
When I make the time to sit down and study God's word everyday. I notice it becomes easier to make healthy food choices, the house stays tidier, and I exercise more.
Being faithful helps me to focus on what is real and right. It calibrates my brain and helps me make better choices. My husband is reading "Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters".
We were talking about happiness, and how faithfulness to God's laws brings happiness in our own lives. Delaying self gratification and doing what is right actually makes us more happy, than if we self-indulge. Counter-intutive, and not the advice from mainstream, but very true.
Have you ever noticed 'more' time in your day, after reading and praying? Do you find yourself happier when you are disciplined and are faithful in your daily tasks? I love for you to leave a comment and tell me about your faithful experience.
Mathew 21:21 (NIV)
"His master replied, 'Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master's happiness!'
