Steadfast love and faithfulness – Proverbs 3:3-4

“Let not steadfast love and faithfulness forsake you;
bind them around your neck;
write them on the tablet of your heart.

So you will find favor and good success
in the sight of God and man.”

Proverbs 3:3 — 3:4

My Pondering:

Here I read that success takes work and the writer points to love and faithfulness as the keys. Again, steadfast love and faithfulness are the two focal points.

I especially appreciate the word steadfast. It signifies being steady (sure, consistent, regular, unwavering, stall-worthiness) and fast (quick, ready, nimble, energetic).

We are to love God, others and ourselves – in that order. We do what we do with love and passion, as working unto God – whatever good thing, not matter how basic or complicated.

We are also encouraged to do ALL that we do with faithfulness. We must understand not everything will always make sense. Not everything is logical and can be proven scientifically. Let’s just do our best at doing the best, right, next thing and trust God to the results. That’s called Providence.

When we do our best as prescribed, the success is to be had as we find favor with God foremost but then also with man as a bonus.

Action words:

Let not, bind, write, find.

My prayer:

Lord, show me your love and faithfulness so I can embrace and share the same.
