Fruit of Faithfulness – Mon – 21-07-05

What do women want in a man? I know, this is an age-old mystery — for men, that is! Women know what they want. Consider some of the items listed in an article entitled “10 Signs You Have a Great Husband.”* Women want someone who respects them, has a sense of humor, admits his mistakes and communicates well. Also on their list is faithfulness.

When thinking about faithfulness, we often think of marriage. Faithfulness is seen in the man who lives a lifetime loving the wife married in his youth, and of the woman who loves only her husband. In contrast, a cheating spouse is the very definition of unfaithfulness. Have you noticed that unfaithfulness can also be contagious? When one spouse cheats, the other sometimes also cheats – as if one wrong excuses another wrong.

But God is different. He remains faithful, even when people cheat on him. This is the thought behind Romans 3:3 where Paul discusses the Jewish people. He wrote, “What if some did not have faith? Will their lack of faith nullify God’s faithfulness?” He answers the question in the next verse with “Not at all! Let God be true and every man a liar!”(NIV) You see, God is faithful to his promises, even if no one else is. If you want to see faithfulness, look at God’s work throughout history. And remember, you can trust God. He is faithful.
