So do you have any jewelry on today? Ring...bracelets...pretty necklace. If you do, it's something everyone can see. God wants us to wear jewelry. The jewelry we are to wear is the jewelry of loyalty and kindness. It a necklace to wear everyday.
Proverbs 3:3-4 are great verses. "Never let loyalty and kindness get away from you. Wear them like a necklace. Write them deep within your heart. Then you will find favor with God and people." We've made these our family verses because we need a lot of kindness and loyalty in our house for life to work. It's true in each of our lives though...we need loyalty and kindness. Are you a loyal person? Is that a characteristic that is strong in your life? Why be loyal? Be loyal because people will like you- favor. Favor helps. Favor gives you a voice, and it gives you respect. How about kindness? Do you think of "others first"? Kindness gives us favor with God. I want God's favor. I think we all do. Kindness is a word we use so much, but are we actually kind?
We are to wear loyalty and kindness for all to see, and we are to write them deep in our heart. Deep in my heart or a part of who I am. Loyal and kind should be our true character, not just something we throw on for jewelry.
Enjoy Proverbs 3 and be truly loyal and kind because favor with God and people will make for a good life.
