    Loyalty

    One ingredient for lifelong friendships is loyalty to our associates and acquaintances. People who change friendships often are usually lonely people. Our friends cannot figure out when we can be trusted if our friendship changes as often as we change our shirt or blouse. Consistent loyalty not fluctuating affection is what our companions expect from us.

    Many of us are extremely loyal to our country. When they play the national anthem we stand to attention and respect it. Some of us sign up to serve in the military. In so doing, we promise to give our lives of necessary to defend our nation’s freedom.

    Those who attend college keep up with their team long after we graduate. We buy plane tickets, schedule motel space, and purchase seats in the middle of the field to cheer our team to victory. We would never sit on the opponent’s side of the field. Our standing the entire game would not be much of a price for our team. With kind of loyalty, these persons are almost impossible to bribe.

    Now in our personal lives and at work, we need to exemplify loyalty to our family, friends and co-workers. Don’t change just because someone criticized us. They may have only had a bad day. They still love us but their tongue was a little loose on its hinges that day. At other times, employees may be working hard to please us but really make a big mistake, blunder or fail on their job. Let’s not mark them off of our friendship list. We can be loyal to them by coaching them and giving them another chance.

    Lastly, let us all be loyal to our religious beliefs and our set of right and wrong. Adhering to these through life will yield a multitude of friends and admirers. Life will also be enjoyable when we are proud of our conduct before God and others.
