It’s easy to get caught up in the events of the day.
There are so many tasks and responsibilities that can distract us from what’s really important. Where does faith fit into our day? Should it flow throughout every aspect, or should we set aside a certain time of the day, to specifically focus on faith?
Hebrews, chapter eleven begins with this statement: “Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. This is what the ancients were commended for.“ Following this statement, the author uses an array of Old Testament fore-fathers, to prove the commendable faith that was shown during their lives.
These leaders were not commended for their bravery or ability to facilitate people or projects. No, it was their faith that was the commendable attribute. At the end of our lives, we should all want to hear those words, “Well done, good and faithful servant!” (Matt. 25:21a)
A great leader must not simply have faith, but have such faith as to be commended. Therefore, we should not simply work through our day, without having some faith-based perspective.
Today, take a mental walk through the rest of Hebrews 11. Consider the possibility that faith could be one of your commendable character traits.
When completed, get serious about making faith a key part of your day. Set some reminders to bring faith into key projects that you may be working on, or the people you work with or oversee. Bring faith into your daily life.
How have you decided to bring the attribute of faith into your daily life?
