Faithful versus Dutiful (Perspectives #3)

Each week's reading for my Perspectives class begins with a key word and a brief explanation of that word in the context of missions. This weeks word is "Faithful"

"Faithful: Faithful people know they are being trusted. Zeal to fulfill that trust distinguishes the faithful from those who are merely dutiful. The dutiful perform what is required, and so they are sometimes daunted in the face of sacrifice. The faithful remain dedicated to the One who entrusts them despite the high cost. Sacrifice is a light thing for them, because they have already entered into some of the joy of their Master, who commends them for being not only good, but also faithful."
