A Faithless Man vs. A Faithful Man

What good is a faithless man?

faithless: unworthy of faith or trust; unreliable.

A faithless man is a destroyer.

He has no worth. No value. He offers no true contribution to life. His leadership is false – a distraction. He escorts those who follow him into darkness – sadness – madness. A faithless man has no honor. No integrity. He is without loyalty and has no comprehension of commitment. He is not worth his word and his word has no worth. He is full of deceit because he knows not honesty or truth. He causes pain because he is not a conduit of love. He takes but doesn’t know how to receive. He expects but doesn’t know how to give. He does wrong and demands forgiveness, but is too proud to humble himself and ask for it. Ahh, pride… all sin rolls up or comes down to pride. The faithless man thinks only of himself in the present moment. He does not foresee consequences for his behavior or fallout from his choices. By his actions he hates and humiliates his wife, teaches his children to mimic him and destroys his family for generations to come.  

What can you do with a faithless man?

You can only be led astray – repeatedly; you will never be led right.

But the man who commits adultery is an utter fool, for he destroys himself. He will be wounded and disgraced. His shame will never be erased. ~ Proverbs 6:32-33 NIV

 

What good is a faithful man?

faithful: worthy of trust or belief; reliable; adhering firmly and devotedly; loyal.

A faithful man is a builder.

His value is inestimable. He will give his life for you and ask for nothing in return. He is honor-bond to love, to cleanse, to heal and to keep holy the wife given to him. He is honest in his weakness and speaks truth to God’s glory. He recognizes his wife as a blessing made for the purpose of building him up so he can better hold her up. Because he loves first, he and his household are blessed by the fruit of love he plants in his wife. A faithful man communicates his intentions and his goals. He is humble and not self-seeking. He knows life is not about him. It has never been about him. Life is about Christ and he wants to know Christ better each and every day. To this end, he teaches his children to walk in the ways of God… as he does. He sets his family up for good success – as individuals and as a unit. The family relationships operate on honor, integrity, respect, love, loyalty and faithfulness because he exhibits these characteristics in his relationship with his wife. By his actions he honors and glorifies God and his family is blessed for generations to come

What can you do with a faithful man?

Respect and follow him all the days of your life, for his righteousness will cover you.

Most men will proclaim each his own goodness, but who can find a faithful man? The righteous man walks in his integrity; his children are blessed after him.  ~ Proverbs 20:6-7 NKJV
