Faithful: a steadfast in affection, firm in keeping promises or in observance of duty: given with strong assurance, true to the facts.
Words like consistency, reliable, and dependable come to mind when you think of this virtue of being a healthy man. Words that evoke thoughts of being there for your loved ones and that you can be counted upon.
A faithful man’s words are reinforced by his actions, consistently keeping your promises, developing a reputation for over delivering whenever possible.
Faithfully being there emotionally, able and willing to talk about feelings. Including your willingness to share your own thoughts and feelings too. And not just the good stuff, but transparent about the not so good stuff, and how you handled it.
Faithfulness isn’t so much of an action or behavior; it’s your presence that your loved ones know and feel deep within themselves even when you’re not able to be there in person.
“Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.” 1 Peter 4:10
