This constitutes all countries with populations of 250,000 or more, as well as a sampling of countries with lower populations.

Faithfulness and Fidelity

Those who trust God are called to acknowledge their dependence and live blamelessly (Psalm 8 and Psalm 26). Job is an example of faithfulness, even in the midst of suffering (Job 1:1, 2:1-10). In all things we must follow Jesus Christ (Hebrews 1:1-4; 2:5-12). This includes honoring faithful relationships between men and women (Genesis 2:18-24 and Mark 10:2-14). Jesus calls his followers to receive the ways of God's kingdom like little children, in innocence and purity (Mark 10:14-16 and Psalm 8).
