The #FiveMinuteFriday word for this week is loyal.
To whom or to what are you loyal?
Do you put requirements on your loyalty?
Are you loyal no matter what happens?
Have you given your loyalty to a person or a cause only to have them turn on you?
WHAT DOES IT REALLY MEAN TO BE LOYAL?
To me it means sticking by someone you love even when they seem to be moving away.
It means sitting with someone not saying a word when they just need to know you care.
It means sticking with someone and not giving up on them no matter how many mistakes are made.
[bctt tweet=”Being loyal to someone often requires sacrifice on your part.” username=”GaylWright”]Being loyal to someone often requires sacrifice on your part, but when it’s someone you love you are willing to do whatever it takes.
My loyalty is first to Jesus Christ. He is the one who showed what true loyalty is. He was true to what God, His Father sent Him to do. He gave His life because it was the only way to provide redemption to us.
He loves us still and continues to be loyal as He intercedes for us before the Father. I don’t know about you, but that gives me cause for hope.
First, I want to be loyal to Christ, because He was first loyal to me. He never fails, but is always ready to forgive. He gives strength in weakness. His love is fathomless.
After Christ, I want to be loyal to my friends and family and anyone else who needs a friend. I know that He will enable me to be a true friend to those in need and to those I love.
