Proverbs 28:20 – A faithful man will abound with blessings, But he who hastens to be rich will not go unpunished.
You see here that a faithful man is one who is honest and who does not covet great wealth yet he will be richly blessed. Conversely, the man who seeks to enrich himself quickly by unethical means will be punished. Although they are good things to work towards, you should never be in a hurry to be promoted or get ahead. Instead, be faithful right were God has you and He will bring you greater blessings than you would ever receive by your own hands
Do you find yourself overcome by the urgency to have more in your life? Feeling as though you never have enough to meet your needs? Your challenge this week is to practice striving for faithfulness in the little things that are before you. Does your job require you to be at the office at 8:00, but you never get there before 8:15? Make a point to be on time or even early this week. Do you manually keep track of your work hours each day, rounding your time up to the nearest hour or two? Be faithful to your employer by being honest on your timecard. You see, it is being honest in every area of your life that will build a life of faithfulness in every area of your live. This is what pleases and honors God.
