TEXT:1 Corinthians 4:2
Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful.
Commentary by Jacob Atitebi
Faithfulness is key to success in ministry. Any man who must end well must be faithful in ministry or whatsoever is committed into his hand. When a person is put in charge as a manager of God's resources such a man must be faithful in other to end well according to God's standard of acceptance. Faithfulness is not an option but a necessity if you must obtain a good reward as a steward.
The one requirement for stewards is that they be “found faithful.” “Faithful” carries the idea of being trustworthy or reliable. A faithful person is a person upon whom God can rely for service. God will search our soul to find something; that one thing for which He looks is faithfulness. In context, faithfulness toward God’s truth – the “mysteries”of 4:1 – is at stake; hmmmm.
Are you doing what you are expected by God to do with what you have? Are you executing the supernatural endowments (gifts) God has given you to do His work. Are you a reliable steward? Can God count on you?
