{Checklist For Life: Week 11, Loyalty}

I’ve had so much fun this week with our series on {Changes}. However, today, we’re going to cut in with our  Checklist for Life, book study. I promised you, I’d continue posting it so here we go…



If you’re new to the blog, you can view all past lessons here ->Feel free to go back and review and download the FREE Scripture Cards for each week.

Here’s a tip:  (after you download the FREE Scripture Cards at the link above) I cut these out and laminated them. I then bought loose leaf book rings at STAPLES (office supply store), punched a hole through them and now my kids can study the verses anytime without losing any of the scripture cards (especially helpful when reviewing while on the road).


Without further delay, let’s go ahead and jump into Week 11: Loyalty.

{READ} first things first… let’s check out God’s word. What does God’s word say about {LOYALTY}?

  • Proverbs 18:24
  • Numbers 12:7
  • Deuteronomy 7:9
  • 3 John 1:5
  • Luke 16:10
  • Psalm 31:23

****free Scripture memory cards to come next week*****



The biblical principle for loyalty stems from Gods commandment to love Him and to love others as He loves you. God doesn’t want you to be faithful to Him alone; He wants you to be loyal to your family, your friends, and anyone in authority over you. That kind of loyalty is lived out in the nitty-gritty details of life.

-Checklist For Life: for teens, Thomas Nelson Publishers 

  • How do you define loyalty?
  • How does it compare with Scriptures definition of loyalty?
  • Loyalty is easy when all is well. How would loyalty look like if a friend, family member, or person in authority ‘messes’ up?
  • How does loyalty to God look like?
  • Is there ever a time when you should not remain loyal? If so, when?


(pg. 90 in the book)


If you’re going through the book study with us, now it’s your turn.

Allow God to lead you and guide you as you lead and instruct your teens. While going through this chapter, I found that perhaps it would be easier to love those in our lives faithfully if we did so with a heart to love loyally. I instantly thought about times when I’m not very lovable and God continues to love me. Can I extend that same kind of loyal love to those around me? Or am I too busy pointing out mistakes and criticizing? Do I get turned off when those around me disappoint me and do not meet my expectations or am I choosing to love them loyally, in spite of their shortcomings?

Loyal love must come with humility; with an understanding that, we too, are imperfect. We too make mistakes.

My prayer today is, “Lord, teach me to love friends, family, and those in authority with your kind of love, a  loyal love.”


So there you have it, this weeks study. Send me your comments and let me know how it went for you. I want to hear about it! And get ready for next week’s topic, {Overreacting: Time To Chill}.
