  5. Loyalty and Faithfulness

"Loyalty and Faithfulness"

Loyalty and faithfulness are excellent qualities. According to "Webster's New World Dictionary," the meaning of loyalty includes allegiance, devotion, fidelity, trustworthiness, integrity, honesty, reliability, truthfulness and more.

God Places Great Importance on Faithfulness

"Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. Then you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man" (Prov 3:3-4).

True loyalty springs from the heart and is wrapped in love. It is often in our most private moments that true loyalty, or the lack of it, is made known.

Loyalty and Faithfulness to One's Country

Being loyal and faithful to one's country is absolutely essential. After World War II, our country was filled with celebration, patriotism, loyalty, and thankfulness.

Many loyal men and women paid with their lives to prevent our country from being overtaken by our brutal enemy. If the enemy had succeeded, our way of life such as we know it would have never come to pass.

Employers and Employees

I once worked for a company that had imprinted on each paycheck the words, "Speak well of your company, you are a Part of it." It was absolutely true. I have worked for a number of corporations since then, but have never forgotten those words.

I believe employers should have the right to expect loyalty and faithfulness from their employees, and that employees should be able to expect the same.

Marriage and Dating

During these stressful times, we need to do everything possible to maintain confidence and trust in our relationships. Faith and trust are established through one's acts of loyalty. Loyalty and faithfulness are essential to a happy marriage.

Unfaithful acts, such as adultery or cheating in finances, can be devastating. Even seemingly small actions, such as flirtation, or revealing private and intimate information about one's mate, can be very damaging.

What at first may appear to go unnoticed or unchallenged, may, in the end, destroy the wonderful warm feelings, of confidence and trust that once was theirs.

Friends

We all need genuine, unshakable friends in our lives. The greatest evidence of true friendship is loyalty. A loyal friend will be by your side through good times and bad, and will always represent your best interest.

Do you stick up for a friend when you hear someone telling something untrue, that could destroy his/her good name? Are you trustworthy in all your interactions with them? If so, you are a loyal friend, and she/he is truly blessed.

Broken Trust is Difficult to Regain

Being loyal and faithful to others are acts of love, and instantly recognized as such. There is a quotation that goes: "Your actions speak so loudly I can't hear what you are saying." This is true in all areas of our lives. It is very difficult to convince someone you are loyal when your actions indicate otherwise.

The Rewards

It is emotionally and spiritually healthy to form the habit of doing only the things that make us feel good about ourselves. These qualities can be developed through prayer and cultivation, and are worth every effort.

Being loyal and faithful toward God and our fellow man brings about inner feelings of strength and confidence. In return, we will be rewarded with the trust and confidence of others that was first earned by our loyalty and faithfulness to them.

Loyalty and Faithfulness



"Lets Teach Our Children to Love"

Why is it so difficult for our educators and society, in general, to understand that love and respect for one another taught from a young age can solve much of the world's hostility and social problems!

"Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it" (Prov 22:6).

Love is the answer!
