What are the benefits of being trustworthy?

Psalm 15:1-5Who may worship in your sanctuary, Lord? Who may enter your presence on your holy hill? Those who lead blameless lives and do what is right, speaking the truth from sincere hearts. Those who refuse to gossip or harm their neighbors or speak evil of their friends. Those who despise flagrant sinners, and honor the faithful followers of the Lord, and keep their promises even when it hurts. Those who lend money without charging interest, and who cannot be bribed to lie about the innocent. Such people will stand firm forever.

You are able to have an open, honest, and fulfilling relationship with almighty God.

1 Timothy 1:12I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has given me strength to do his work. He considered me trustworthy and appointed me to serve him,

How thankful I am to Christ Jesus our Lord for considering me trustworthy and appointing me to serve him,

You can be used by God for his service.

Titus 2:9-10Slaves must obey their masters and do their best to please them. They must not talk back or steal, but they must show themselves to be entirely trustworthy and good. Then they will make the teaching about God our Savior attractive in every way.

You can cause others to desire a relationship with God.

Matthew 25:29To those who use well what they are given, even more will be given, and they will have an abundance. But from those who are unfaithful, even what little they have will be taken away.

You will be rewarded by God for your faithfulness to him.

1 Samuel 12:4“No,” they replied, “you have never cheated or oppressed us in any way, and you have never taken even a single bribe.”

Genesis 50:5-6, 22He told them, “Tell Pharaoh that my father made me swear an oath. He said to me, ‘I am about to die; take my body back to the land of Canaan, and bury me in our family’s burial cave.’ Now I need to go and bury my father. After his burial is complete, I will return without delay.” Pharaoh agreed to Joseph’s request. “Go and bury your father, as you promised,” he said . . . So Joseph and his brothers and their families continued to live in Egypt. Joseph was 110 years old when he died.
