Chapter 2, Page 17, Book 19

Be faithful to your love and you will be recompensed beyond measure.

Albert Schweizer

February 17 - faithfulness

Only the person who has faith in himself is able to be faithful to others.

Erich Fromm

The quality of being faithful means loyal, full of faith or trust. Firmly and resolutely staying with a person , group, cause, belief or idea without waver, despite the circumstances, Faithful love endures for ever. 

We live in a culture where faithfulness is hard to find. Too many don’t want to work, they don’t want to be loyal or faithful.  Everybody wants, but not many are faithful or willing to pay the price for what they want. If they don’t like it here, they go there.  Many companies are struggling to recruit faithful loyal people.  

Faithfulness is the heart, that is where you find loyalty.  Faithful in little things is the indication you will be faithful in the larger things. Faithful to our jobs, to our kids, or to our spouses.

Faithfulness will give you a peace beyond understanding, chronic happiness, an uncontrollable sense of pride, strong confidence, a feeling of security and a real connection with others. 

Be faithful in small things because it is in them your strength lies.

Mother Teresa

So, so true! Even my granddaughter - new to the workforce - has commented on co-workers attitudes about their jobs like it was something disposable. Something Zig Ziglar said has stuck with me, about whatever your job/role, do it with faithfulness and do it well. Happy Sunday!

Being faithful in everything we do and in every relationship we want to pursue is a good quality to have. Its good to have a reputation that people can rely on what you say you are going to do. Something to make sure children are taught.

I must parrot both Myra and Betty above. Faithfulness is a REAL test of character...
