“Is loyalty — devotion to highest duty — desirable? Then must man carry on amid the possibilities of betrayal and desertion. The valor of devotion to duty consists in the implied danger of default.” (UB, 3:5.12)
Thought Adjuster: “Would you like to be remembered for your dedication to implementing the core values of truth, beauty, and goodness — the divine ideal? Loyalty is the sublime quality of staying firm in your friendship, or the support you give to someone or some cause after ensuring that you wisely invest your allegiance.
Are you fully committed to the divine cause? If so, how does it reflect on your life? Jesus became the poster boy for undivided loyalty — to those he had vowed to extirpate from the quick sand of lies and deception, and to his noble self. Never did he betray his triple sacred oath.
“Children are permanently impressed only by the loyalties of their adult associates; precept or even example is not lastingly influential. Loyal persons are growing persons, and growth is an impressive and inspiring reality. Live loyally today — grow — and tomorrow will attend to itself. The quickest way for a tadpole to become a frog is to live loyally each moment as a tadpole.” (UB, 100:1.4).
