Never let go of loyalty and faithfulness. Tie them around your neck; write them on your heart. If you do this, both God and people will be pleased with you.

Proverbs 3:3-4  
Often times I look at people and wonder if they truly understand what loyalty is. Do we grasp the concept that it’s a true commitment between husband/wife, friends, beliefs, and family? Webster dictionary defines loyalty as a, “strong feeling of support or allegiance.” Are we living in a time where loyalty has died or been lost somewhere with our morals? When we marry, we take a vow to be loyal. It doesn’t mean we are loyal in just good times, prosperous times, or healthy times. It means to be loyal during all times. So many of us are quick to marry, but so easily disrespect the unity of it. We should be loyal in friendships as well. Yet. Two people will have a fall out or simply drift apart and the next thing you know they are bad mouthing each other and sharing once kept secrets. Does loyalty just dissolve that easily? We witness families fight and bicker and completely fall apart, when they should be supporting and encouraging each other. And, how loyal are we too ourselves? We so often give our bodies, time, and possessions so easily to people who aren’t always deserving of them. When we aren’t loyal, supportive, and trustworthy, we decrease our own value. We strip ourselves or respect and honor.

We must step up and learn how to be loyal again. To mean our words when we share them and protect our allegiances even when we feel hurt or distant from them. It’s our job to protect our spouses from infidelity and dishonesty. And, in our families we must continously build a sense of strength and unity amongst each other.

“Honestly and loyalty are key. If two people can be honest with each other about everything, that’s probably the biggest key to success”

Taylor Lautner

  1. It is very true that honesty and loyalty are becoming extinct. Trying to instill these values in your children in a world that leads them to believe hey are not necessary is heart breaking. There’s no more your word is your bond or I got your back it really is every man for themselves and it’s a sad affair. As for me and my house we know loyalty and exhibit honesty and integrity in every thing that we do or say.
    Be blessed!

    1. Thanks for commenting! Its sad to see the break in our society. It makes me wonder what type of world our children are going to grow up in, because it’s a struggle now. I wonder if it’s something that can be changed or fixed? We have men being shot in the streets, but we aren’t united enought to stand up together.
