As I was backpacking through Yosemite this past week with Rick Oldenkamp and his friends, I was thinking many times about faithfulness, the seventh fruit of the Spirit named in Galatians 5. What does it mean to have faith? And what does it mean to be a faithful person, one who exemplifies faithfulness? Two weeks ago, I described goodness as love in action. Similarly, I believe that faithfulness is love that endures all things as I Corinthians 13:7 puts it. The faithful person is dependable and trustworthy even when things are difficult. We are blessed to have such people in our lives. For the faithful ones in our midst, let us give thanks. With God’s help, may we all be faithful people!
