National Bible Week 2012 – Day 3: Loyalty and Faithfulness

It is really becoming a problem now in the culture of Asians, especially in the Philippines, is becoming loyal and faithful. A lot are engaging polygamy and parallel relationships, which are not included in our culture as romantic and faithful lovers. Now the culture is becoming worse, if you are a guy and you have several relationships at a time, you are much favorable to other female’s species, thus piling up a lot of relationship until it overflows. Same as with girls, before it is only guys who are “macho” if he has a lot of relationships, now even girls explore this part of being “macho” of the male species they also now engage in polygamy.

Is it a reason that if the trend dictates the culture what is “IN” of the times, everybody does it because it is cool?

John 3:16

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.

Today doing well is a weakness to some people. Having the animal instinct or having a bad image is good thing. I do not believe in some people that having a bad side add up the favorability of a person. Maybe it is an ingredient of being imperfect; having a bad side, but being good is always favorable. Having multiple relationships at a time especially when you are already married, is a -1 on one’s book.

People says the having multiple relationships at a time is a thrill, time juggling is exciting and the highlight of it is being caught but still getting out of it. Hurting someone’s feeling is really a bad burden that will haunt you through your life, but being with someone is really an amazing feeling. Going through marriage is really a tough decision in life; some thought of it as “Game Over”, some it is a nightmare. It is a nightmare really if you are going through this process that you are not willing to give up yourself to the one you love. It is a celebration of life and living the rest of your life to the person you offered your life with. It is the celebration of love that pushes you further even through tough times. It is not a fairy tale either; it is just one step to the people that are willing to be together as one and taking the responsibility of taking care of each other as long as you live.

Loyalty and faithfulness it is hard to look for it and sometime people tend to accept that they will not find that love anymore. It will start in yourself that if you are willing to be loyal and faithful to yourself, you will not let others do that unto you. Being loyal to yourself will come out to your deeds and actions, thus attract people that are willing to be loyal.

Loyalty within the relationship is really tough but not impossible. For years you have been together and your guts push you to have some thrill in life, and you turn into sinful relationships. Yes, it is a bit boring and steady be with the one you choose for almost a decade now and you are running out of options? No, there are a lot of activities that can be done to avoid boredom. If you are loyal to your partner and you really love him/her, you will be honest and you will talk about it. You will rekindle the fire from the first time you met the one.

No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
(Matthew 6:24)

Loyalty is not tough, it’s the process of doing the right thing to do is the hardest. It is like a vice that you want to release from your body and you give chills sometimes. Overcoming the temptation is like climbing the highest mountain but if you did it you will be victorious.
