Because It's Right


"He wears his faith as the fashion of his hat" William Shakespeare....Much Ado About Nothing...

If the Lord is going to be faithful to us, there is another thing that he expects from us. "A faithful man will be richly blessed, but one eager to get rich will not go unpunished" (Prov.28:20). I believe that the Lord wants us to be more faithful to ourselves. The writer of Proverbs says here that those that are faithful to themselves will be richly blessed. We cannot afford to be like Shakespeare's man in today's quote. We are not to be faithful Christians because it is fashionable or expedient. When this is the only criteria for being a Christian, the meaning has been lost. We will not only harm ourselves, but we will be a detriment to those around us. We simply won't be reliable or trustworthy if we are tossed about by every wind of whim. But there are good things in store for those who are faithful to themselves. "Love the Lord, all his saints! The Lord preserves the faithful" (Psa.31:23). We see that the Lord not only blesses the faithful, but preserves them also. Being faithful to ourselves should not be something that can be turned on and off like a light switch. We owe it to the Lord and to ourselves to be faithful because it is the right thing to do. We deserve it....The Lord certainly deserves it....Those around us who we care for deserve it. Why? BECAUSE ITS RIGHT!

Have a wonderful day....It would be good to end the week with a RAK too....Love mark Phil.4:11
