Loyal is defined as: faithful and devoted to someone or something; giving or showing firm and constant support or allegiance to a person or institution; faithful to one’s oath, commitments, or obligations.
Loyal to whom?
We need to learn to be more loyal to God and His word, to our friends and coworkers, to our bosses and the companies we work for. It doesn’t mean we allow others to do wrong, and cover it up because of a sense of loyalty. It means we honor our commitments; we purpose to honor our word.
Loyal to God:
Some people demand loyalty but don’t give it. I believe we need to be loyal to God and doing His will. We tend to be loyal to people more than to God Himself. If we want the blessing of God, we must be loyal to our word. The Bible says that God honors those who keep an oath even when it hurts. It doesn’t mean to lie or cheat for someone or something. It means when we give our word, we keep it. So many are loyal only to themselves, and to no other.
Think about it:
We really do need to think about where our loyalties lie. Sometimes we are loyal to family, even when what they are doing is wrong. As we grow in our relationships with God, let’s not have divided loyalties. If we do, we will hate the one and love the other. No one can serve two masters — no one!
Let’s be loyal to our commitment to serve and honor God and His word, and see how loyal He is to us.
Just a thought,
