Faithfulness is a big deal to God. Jesus told a story about a nobleman who gave ten servants money to invest before leaving on a trip. When he came back, he rewarded the one who made the most money. Well done, good servant; because you were faithful in a very little, have authority over ten cities. (Luke 19:17)
To me, this says that it wasn’t that much work for the servant to trade well. He was faithful in very little. What is astounding is that being faithful in very little brought a huge reward. That boggles me. But it tells me that God honors those who are faithful in what they are called to.
Faithfulness extends to everything you do, especially at your job. Do you give a hundred percent? Are you surfing the web, or your cell phone, when you should be working? If you are on the clock, your time belongs to your employer. Being faithful to your job is honorable, even when you don’t like it.
Don’t allow a bad experience or the bad attitudes of others to sway to from doing what is right. Your faithfulness is an expression of your commitment to God. And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men. (Col 323)
