We live in a world that values winners not losers, successes not failures. And don’t even talk to me about faithfulness. Plain old faithfulness is highly underrated on earth. But it heaven, it’s valued higher than anything else.
God has given each of us time, talents and treasure. One day he will ask us what we did with all that he entrusted to us. He won’t ask us how successful we were. He won’t calculate our wins and losses. He wants to know one thing and one thing only. Were we faithful with what he gave us?
Some will hear, “Well done, good and faithful servant! Come and share your master’s happiness!” (Matthew 25:23) Will you?
