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.
Love and faithfulness are hard to find in today’s world. They both require commitment. Unfortunately, our society promotes what feels good for the moment rather than those things that last. Commitment means that when the going gets tough that people bond together even tighter, but the world is full of fair weather friends that leave as soon as difficulties come.
These things are all needed in any relationship of worth, whether it be between human beings or between God and man.
