30 Bible Verses About Faithfulness To Others
God is ever faithful, and as Christians, we are commanded, advised and instructed to always be faithful to God. Our faithfulness to God, is shown not only in obedience to his word, in prayer and fasting, but also in our faithfulness to others. In our faithfulness and service to others, we are being faithful to God and to his will for us.
Our faithfulness to others is shown in the love we have for them, in the times we are of help to them, in the times we forgive and also the times we reprimand and correct them. We should always be there for one another, we are to be our brother’s keeper. This act, earns us favour before man, and ultimately before God. Being faithful in little things, will only put you in charge of greater things, and make you a worthy and reliable person. That is how people should know you as a child of God, you should be faithful, first of all, to the Almighty Father, and then, to those around you.
