Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. Then you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man.

– Proverbs 3:3-4 (NIV)

Today’s commentary

Do you want to have favor and a good name? This proverb gives us an important insight: put others around you as top priority and make sure that you are seen as someone who is faithful. To bind these qualities around your neck is to have them with you always. Loving others and being consistent in our work will make one invaluable to any organization or group of friends. This is actually very challenging, but the reward of favor and a good name is more than worth it.
