Week 8: FAITHFULNESS
Read Galatians 5:22-23.
“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.”
Can anyone name all the Fruits that we learned so far…
Today’s Fruit is Faithfulness.
Have you ever heard the word faithful?
It’s a big word, isn’t it? Well, faithfulness is being there for someone, being loyal, believing in something even when it seems hard or no one else is doing it. It is remaining constant no matter how circumstances change.
You know that your parents love you. If they had to go on a trip somewhere and you had to stay here with Grandma, that wouldn’t change how much they love you and how much you love them. They would still be faithful in loving you and you would still be faithful in loving them.
Did you know God is a faithful God? He loves us and He does what is best for us because He loves us. He is always the same...yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
What does that mean? Yesterday, today, and tomorrow? What about the next day?
When we are faithful, we show others we can be depended on and we do what is right because we know we are God’s children.
How would you show me, as your coach, that I can depend on you?
How do you know that you can depend on, or have faith, in me?
Let’s pray: Dear God,
I know You love me and are faithful all the time. Help me grow to be more trustworthy and faithful to You and others every day.
