Proverbs 3:3 NLT
Never let loyalty and kindness leave you! Tie them around your neck as a reminder. Write them deep within your heart.
Loyalty. It speaks to a right relationship with God, because we are to be loyal to God, not to other men. Loyalty divided is not loyalty at all, but is treason. Our loyalty is to God and God alone, not to a person, not to a nation, not to a cause – but to God. The first five of the ten commandments speak of loyalty to God.
Kindness. It speaks to a right relationship with others, because we are to be kind to others. And kindness is not doing good for others so they will repay you with good in return. No, that is manipulation. Kindness is doing good to others regardless of the outcome. The last five of the ten commandments speak of kindness to others.
