Trustworthiness

This summer, I've given our children a challenge.  I've asked them to list character traits and then asked them to write a short devotional thought about a few of them.  Their devotional thought will become my post once a week. 

This week the word is "Trustworthiness", and the post today is by our second oldest child, Zachary.  He is 13...almost 14 (thought I'd better put that!).

TRUSTWORTHINESS by Zachary

Out of all of the character traits that there are, to me the best one is to be a trustworthy person.  Trustworthiness means deserving of trust or reliable.  Proverbs 11:13 says that a trustworthy man keeps a secret.  He doesn't go and tell a secret that has been told to him by a friend.

In the parable of the ten minas (a weight of money) in Luke 19:11-26, it says in verse 17, "Because you have been trustworthy in one very small matter, take charge of ten cities." You see, that one very small matter put the man in charge of ten cities - only because he chose to be a trustworthy and reliable person.

“What’s right is right even if no one is doing it.
What’s wrong is wrong even if everyone is doing it.”
- Unknown author

I am grateful for the character trait of "Trustworthiness".  Join us for Gratituesday at Heavenly Homemakers.
