As you read Proverbs in your Bible, mark the major themes in the margin.
3 Let love and faithfulness never leave you;
bind them around your neck,
write them on the tablet of your heart.
4 Then you will win favor and a good name
in the sight of God and man.
23 Jesus replied, "If anyone loves me,
he will obey my teaching.
My Father will love him,
and we will come to him
and make our home with him.”
As we look around us, we see those whose qualities gain respect. On the same note there are those who are tyrants, who demand respect, forced by their pride. The difference is the quality of love and faithfulness, verses the lack of love and faithfulness. Our goal is not to gain favor before men, but favor before God that opens our heart allowing Him to work in us and through us, that others will see His glory in what we do. Let us keep love and faithfulness bound around our neck, and written on the tablets of our heart, that the respect we receive will shine brightly before God and men. (Ref: Bob Wegg)
