Well Done, Good and Faithful Servant

Beth Jones

"Most men will proclaim each his own goodness, but who can find a faithful man?" Proverbs 20:6, NKJV

The hardest person to find is the faithful one.

A faithful person is a trustworthy person. A trusted person. A person who is established in truth. "To be faithful” describes a person of long continuance, steadfast and sure. By definition, a faithful person builds up, supports, fosters, renders and is not temporary, but permanent. Faithful people are hard to find because people do what people want to do. The writer of Proverbs tells us so.

The idea of being faithful to another person—as a husband or wife towards their spouse, as a parent towards children, as an employer towards employees, as an employee towards their employer, or as a Christian toward Jesus and His Church—is a rarity these days.

Why? Because being faithful is hard. It takes faith to be "faith-full." It means being unselfish and pushing through pain. The reason faithful people are hard to find is because everyone proclaims themselves and their own goodness. We all have this tendency. We think more highly of ourselves than we ought. We seek our own. We allow our pride and ego to get in the way. We don't want to pay the price faithfulness demands. We get weary and instead of tapping into more grace—we quit. We care more about the praises of men than the praises of God. We don't understand spiritual authority. We get offended and leave our post. It's a brutal assessment, but it's true and we've all been guilty.

Most Christians say they want to obey the Lord, do His will and hear, "Well done, good and faithful servant" when they stand before Him; however, if the writer of Proverbs is right—only a small number of people will actually hear those words. Faithful people are hard to find.

In fact, perhaps we all have more reference points as it relates to an "unfaithful" man. Ever put your confidence in someone—only to be burned and burned again? "Confidence in an unfaithful man in time of trouble is like a broken tooth or a foot out of joint." (Proverbs 25:19, AMP) At the end of the day, unfaithful people bring the same discomfort, irritation, pain and inconvenience to those around them as a chipped tooth or a dislocated joint.

Are you a faithful person or an unfaithful person? If you were gut-check honest—are you really faithful or do you do what you want to do? Can people count on you? Know with confidence you'll get the job done? Feel at peace when you make promises? Sleep well at night knowing you'll pay attention to the details? If so—good for you! God promises that you will abound with blessings! (Proverbs 28:20) Or—are you in the unfaithful category? Do people have to clean up your messes? Check up on you? Micromanage you? Cover for you? Do your job? Fix your mistakes? Scramble to take care of things you overlook? If so—be motivated to up your faithfulness with the Lord’s help! 

Say It: "Father, I want to be a faithful person—no matter the price. I want You to find me faithful. And one day, I want to hear Jesus say, 'Well done good and faithful servant.' Help me to stay the course, do the hard work and be faithful in whatever You assign me to. In Jesus' Name. Amen."
