LOVE & FAITHFULNESS

How do you win favor and a good name in the eyes of God and man? The answer is found in Proverbs 3:3(NIV), “Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart.” Other translations use the words kindness/truth, loyalty/kindness, and truth/mercy. Jesus understood the concept of binding and loosing. He said in Matt 16:19, “I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.” Love and faithfulness affects every relationship we have. The Bible says it is a gift from God. When we receive Christ as Lord, the Holy Spirit indwells us and brings the blessings of love, joy, peace and faithfulness (Galatians 5:22). There is no doubt when love is bound together with faithfulness righteousness and peace have kissed each other (Ps 85:10).
