- Faithfulness – How many times have you been let down by someone who didn’t follow through on their commitment. We all have met people who are not good for their word and don’t think before committing to things they will never be able to fulfill. We want our kids to grow up learning the importance of faithfulness. I found this definition via this link from First Baptist Church of Barberville:
If you were going to define faithfulness, as Paul uses it in the N.T., how would you do it? Well, if you looked in the dictionary, you would find a technical definition that says, “To follow through with a commitment regardless of difficulty.”
“Faithfulness is love hanging on.” It is love saying, “I will not quit. There may be misunderstandings, there may be disappointments, there may be discouragements, but I will not quit.” It is love hanging on.
You can see how yesterday’s quality love and today’s quality faithfulness go hand in hand. Let’s be faithful to pray for our kids development of faithfulness and give them an example of this quality in action.
My Prayer Today
Dear Lord, I come to you rejoicing because of Your great faithfulness to me. I pray that my kids would develop the fruit of faithfulness in their lives. Help me be an example of this to my kids. Keep me on my knees and help me to keep my commitments to You, my spouse, my church, and myself.
In Jesus Name,
My inspiration for this series loosely comes from a prayer card published by Navpress and is available for purchase at this link. This would be a great bookmark for your Bible. I am in no way affiliated with NavPress. I also want to mention my friend Marcy at Ben and Me whom I am joining with for this challenge. She has some great resources available on her site as she is praying for her child’s head, shoulders, knees and toes.
