This past Sunday's readings offer some insight into faithfulness. If we define faith as our belief in God, then faithfulness is our loyalty and commitment to that faith.
The message of the readings is that faithfulness is both a promise and a challenge.
First, God has promised his faithfulness to us. He is always there for us as a source of never-ending love, encouragement and comfort.
But we also learn that faithfulness is a challenge. Certainly, it can be a challenge to remain faithful to God in the face of much adversity and even suffering we see in the world around us.
The key is to follow God Himself as a model of faithfulness. No matter what our circumstance, remain steadfast in our faithfulness to God and we will find peace.
