What kind of “necklace” are you wearing?

Tuesday 3rd of August, 2010

Today’s “Pearl of wisdom” is from Proverbs Chapter 3 verse 3.

“Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart.” (NIV)

 Today’s Proverb is in a way about necklaces!! What do we mean by this? We all wear something on the outside and this reflects what is inside of us. Here in Proverbs 3:3, we are exhorted to wear love and faithfulness. For you gorgeous girl this means that on the inside you are to have these two character traits written all over who you are, in essence, your heart and mind. On the outside, they are to be adorned on you like a beautiful necklace so that when people look at you, it is love and faithfulness that they see.

Love and faithfulness involves showing kindness, loyalty, charity, compassion, truth and mercy. Here’s a question to ponder – what kind of “necklace” are you wearing? For what is written on your heart infuses throughout all that you say and do. As today’s Proverb says, “Let love and faithfulness never leave you!”
