Ups and Downs
A. He thought it was okay since he had gotten into a fight with his old teammates.
A. He felt like he wanted to stay loyal to his friends, by staying on their team.
A. Loyalty means that we take our friendships, and other thing we are committed to, seriously. That even if something happens to make the relationship difficult, or we get what seems like a better offer, we don’t just walk away, but are willing to stick with what we have and try to make things better.
A. It can be that two people just can’t manage to get along, or one person is really being harmful to the other. Then the right thing to do would be to let the friendship cool. But other than this, we shouldn’t take our friendships lightly, and we should try to remain loyal if we can.
A. God loves each of us more than we can possibly imagine. His love for us is unconditional. Whatever we do, He stays loyal to us and continues to guide us in the way that will bring us to our greatest good. Even if we may forget about Him, He never forgets about us.
A. Part of it is to build our trust in Him. Although everything God does is good, sometimes that good can be hard for us to understand. At those times, we can show our loyalty by not pulling away, but accept and trust that one day we will see the good.
