One of the most important qualities to develop in our lives is the quality of FAITHFULNESS. Faithfulness means being true to your word, keeping your promises, being loyal, being reliable, honest, and trustworthy.
Unfortunately, lack of faithfulness, or ‘unfaithfulness’, is becoming quite rampart in our society.
- A recent study revealed that up to 70% of high school students admitted to serious cheating on tests.
- More and more people are lying on their tax returns, on their resumes, on reports, and in conversations with other people all the time. All up, it is estimated that we are lied to about 200 times each day!
- Other studies reveal that almost 50% of married women and over 50% of married men engage in extramarital sex at some time or another during their relationship.
I don’t know about you, but I find these statistics incredibly alarming. But the sobering truth is that each one of us (me included) have the same potential for unfaithfulness. I encourage you today to make a choice to be a faithful person. Be honest. Keep your word. Tell the truth. It starts in the little things.
Faithfulness … Think about it.
