Our series continues today with Cindy's thoughts on "faithfulness."
When asked to write a post about faithfulness as one of the fruits of the spirit, I immediately felt that I should try; even though I sometimes think I'm very naïve when it comes to my understanding of the Bible. Faithfulness to me means trusting in God as much as humanly possible. That's not to say that I don't worry, and I know that's a sin. But because of His faithfulness to me, I can ask for forgiveness and resume with my faith in him. The song "Great is Thy Faithfulness" immediately comes to mind when I think of faithfulness too. The Lord is faithful to us even when we aren't faithful to Him. I think that my favorite verse about faithfulness doesn't even have the word in it. That verse would be Proverbs 3:5 - Trust in the Lord with all thine heart and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct thy paths. I try to live by this daily!
Thank you, Cindy, and let's gather again tomorrow for our next post in this series!
