Being loyal in the Bible is viewed as a spiritual strength and being disloyal as a character flaw.
We should be more sensitive to our own sins than anyone else's.
God blesses and provides for His people in their obedience which provokes jealousy and envy in those who are not obedient.
When we are made uncomfortable, convicted or even angry by the Bible, a word from God or a teaching, we should ask ourselves how it may apply to us and how it can help us.
We can miss out and lose blessings, spiritually and materially through anger, pride and disobedience.
God promises a harvest of blessing as we do good to everyone, especially the household of faith.
