Friday, 3rd June 2022: Faithfulness is a critical success factor!

Scripture Reading:
Gen 24:2 And Abraham said unto the eldest servant of his house, that ruled over all that he had, Put, I pray thee, thy hand under my thigh:

Reflections: Eliezer of Damascus was the chief steward (servant) in Abraham’s house. He had won the trust of Abraham so much so that Abraham left the management of his resources entirely in his care. When Abraham was childless, he was even tipped to become his heir (Genesis 15:2). Eliezer possessed vital qualities that made him so successful in life. One of them, derived from his description as the eldest servant with overseeing responsibilities, is faithfulness. Without it, there was no way by which Abraham would have entrusted him with the management of his entire estate. Faithfulness is the quality of being true to what you have said or committed yourself to do. Paul confirms that it is indeed a key requirement for successful stewardship ( 1Cor 4:2). To be successful in life, you must be found to be faithful in your delivery. Faithfulness will distinguish you in life!

Prayer: Dear Lord, help me to prove myself faithful in whatever I am assigned to do

Confession: I live by my words and commitment. I am faithful.
