What Does Faithfulness Look Like?

In all areas of our lives, including family life and friendships we should be ready to embrace an active faith. So, how can we put faithfulness in action?

Let’s consider the actions of a faithful woman. She is a mom, wife, and friend, who walks faithfully with God and follows through on whatever she has to do, no matter what. She shows up for her family and others. She keeps her word. James 5:12 says, “Let your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes,’ and your ‘No,’ ‘No.'” So, we must keep our commitments and be reliable – always.

We must also be devoted to diligence, as Jesus was when He came to do His Father’s will. I’ve met so many women who change their minds like the weather. This, in turn, changes their loyalties, prior­ities, and standards. The question to ask as a woman after God’s own heart is this: You can count on the Lord. But can He count on you?

A Prayer to Pray: Lord, may You search my heart and find me to be faithful in my actions and thoughts. Let me put real energy toward being faithful as a wife, mom, friend and woman of God.

Today’s devotional is taken from one of my favorite little gift-books for moms. A Mom After God’s Own Heart Devotional contains over 250 short messages to refresh and recharge busy moms with God’s Word.
