It has been said that righteousness and loyalty go hand in hand. In other words, if weâ€™re not being loyal to God then we arenâ€™t going to experience Godâ€™s best. Loyal people are honourable people. When youâ€™re loyal, you stick with someone through thick and thin. When youâ€™re loyal, you keep your word to people even if you get a â€œbetterâ€ offer.
Loyal people honour their parents and defend their family. Loyal people are respectful. When youâ€™re loyal, you are a person of integrity. You build trust with others. Is this an area where you can rise higher? Are you faithful in the things youâ€™re committed to? Can you be more loyal?
Today, donâ€™t let the distractions of everyday life keep you from being dedicated to God, family and friends. Look for ways to show honour to those around you. Is there something you need to set aside for the sake of a loved one? Show love by staying loyal. As Scripture promises, when you pursue loyalty and righteousness, you will find the abundant life God has for you!
“He who pursues righteousness and loyalty finds lifeâ€¦”(Proverbs 21:21, NASB)
Pray With Me
Yahweh, thank You for the promise of life in Your Word. Father, please show me any area where I can rise up higher by pursuing loyalty. Help me, by Your Spirit, to be more committed and supportive to those around me. God, let Your light shine through me, as I pursue righteousness and loyalty today, in Jesusâ€™ Name! Amen.
