The Blessings of Faithfulness

by Gayle Lechner

The blessings in my life are so abundant that it’s hard for me to imagine not being faithful to such a wonderful, loving God. Understand one thing, though; I am not faithful because of God’s blessings. I don’t look at faithfulness as something to be because of promised rewards. Faithfulness is not something held for ransom until God pays up. I’m not blessed because I attend church twice a week, or tithe, or greet at the sanctuary doors. Those are blessings in and of themselves, but they aren’t reasons for faithfulness.
