“To be faithful is to be reliable, steadfast and unwavering, and the Bible speaks of this type of faithfulness in four ways: as an attribute of God; as a positive characteristic of some men; as a characteristic that many men lack; and as a gift of the Holy Spirit.”1 As we continue with our look at the fruit of the Spirit in our parenting, faithfulness is a word talked about often in Scripture. If you’re like me, you want your kids to remember you as being faithful to God—reliable both in our relationship with our kids but also to the God we serve. They need to see us praying, reading His Word, and sharing it with others. As Christians, that’s what He’s called us to do. Are we doing it?
