Fruitfulness vs Faithfulness

“His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master.’”
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭25:23‬ ‭ESV‬‬

God does not measure our success on the number of our ministries or number of people lead to Jesus. God measures the success of our service in our faithfulness.

In Matthew 25, in the parable of talents, God did not applaud the two servants on their fruitfulness. Instead, God affirms them in their faithfulness. Sometimes, we get discouraged when we don’t see any fruits in our ministry and our mission – if that is the case, let us examine our hearts on the way we follow Jesus.
