#AtoZChallenge - Loyalty and Proverbs 31

Loyal - faithful to one's oath, commitments or obligations.

11.  The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.

Do you know someone who always has your back?  How great is that?!?  I will venture a guess that we all have at least one friend who is loyal to us, and at least one to whom we are loyal.  This quality is essential in families as well.  It is how a parent can tell a child that they love them, even if they are angry with something the child has done.

12.  She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.

When someone to whom you are loyal makes a mistake, in most cases you don't walk away and pretend like you don't know the person.  You walk with them through the valley.  Even if the wrong done crosses into the legal or criminal spheres, consequences will have to be faced, but you still want the best for the person.

Share with us today how you show loyalty or how loyalty has been shown to you!

  1. Recently we had gone through some trying times and it is during these times that we got to know our real friends, the friends who were loyal, who supported us despite the tough times!

  2. How wonderful that you had such friends, Shilpa! I'm going to have a smile on my face all day long now! :O)

  3. I never had many friends.. But few who had always been there. Insightful post.

    1. It's great to have that give and take, Rajlakshmi, isn't it? Have a great week!

  4. It all starts with loyalty to ourselves, our true heart and being. Without this we cannot be genuine with others, nor loyal to them.

  5. I have an extremely small circle of friends who I am extremely loyal to, no matter where they live these days.

  6. I have family and friends who stick by me no matter what, and I have their backs no matter what. Those relationships are priceless.

  7. I agree, loyalty is important for friends, but much more important between mother and child.
