Faithful.

Paul said…

“I thank him who has given me strength, Christ Jesus our Lord, because he judged me faithful, appointing me to his service…” (1 Timothy 1:12)

If I want to be appointed to his service, and I want that to count for something, then before I work on anything in the list above, I need to be faithful.

Faithful in the small things.

Faithful in the behind the scenes things.

Faithful to my relationships. And faithful to a life lived with God.

If I can learn to be faithful, then I can do something significant.

After all, Jesus said… “One who is faithful in very little is also faithful in much..” (Luke 16:10)
