Years ago I fulfilled one of my lifelong dreams when I visited Yellowstone National Park. Many told me of the majesty and power of the geysers as they exploded into the air, sending steam and spray skyward.
The geyser that fascinated me the most was not the largest geyser nor the tallest geyser nor did it spout water higher than the other geysers. It is the world’s most famous geyser: Old Faithful! It is famous because of its faithfulness.
There are times when we envy others for the skills and talents that God has given them. We resent them for the things that they can do and the things we cannot do. We become angry with God for blessing them more than we think He has blest us. We become filled with jealousy and bitterness and believe that God has “His favorites.” Not true! He gives us each of the talents we need to do what He has designed for us to do. It is not about favorites but about faithfulness.
In the end, it’s never about favorites but about faithfulness. It is always about doing what God has called us to do to honor and glorify Him!
Prayer: We ask, Father, that no matter what You call us to be or do, we will remain faithful to You forever. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Scripture for Today: Revelation 2:10 Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life.
