Too often a sense of loyalty depends on admiration, and if we can’t admire, it is difficult to be loyal. (Aimee Buchanan, Olympic figure skater)

Sometimes we find ourselves in a quandary. Perhaps we are on a team where loyalty is essential, but some of our teammates badmouth the coach. Or maybe we have to work with people whose conduct is unacceptable. In those situations, it’s helpful to remember that we are responsible only for our own conduct. We must do our best and set an example of trustworthiness.

Do not waver, for a person with divided loyalty is as unsettled as a wave of the sea that is blown and tossed by the wind. (James 1:6)
